Creating with Context: Bookplates

This is a past event.

Registration required: register here.

Do you like to write your name in your personal books? Come learn about the history of ex libris or bookplates, a label with a printed design intended to indicate ownership, usually pasted inside the front cover of a book, and their tremendous value in the library world.

Browse some examples taken from Archives & Special Collections at the University of Pittsburgh Library System before moving to the Text & conText Lab where you will be able to create (and take home!) your very own bookplates and stickers for your laptop or your e-reader! Make one for yourself or for other book lovers! No previous experience needed.

 

Tuesday, November 8 at 5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.

Hillman Library, Text & conText Lab (third floor)
