The Creative Process

TypewriterDetail from Euclid Detail from Tom Sawyer manuscript notes


Curated by:
Ethan Henderson, Rare Books Curator
Mat Darby, Head of Archival Processing and Collection Management

This exhibition will celebrate creative thinkers past and present and look to foster discussions about literature, the creative process, and the importance of the humanities.

From the first pen stroke to the cover of the book being attached; the initial editorial to the galley proofs; and the cover's graphic design to the printing of the book--the process of creating a "book" takes on many shapes and formats. Visit the exhibition to consider the creative process of authors, creators, and artists who have collaborated to create an object that transmits information in both text and image.
