A Look at a Book

Explore the wonderful collection of rare books, manuscripts, zines, and artists books from Temple’s Special Collections Research Center with “A Look at a Book” series. Each week, via zoom, members of Tyler’s Art History department will open a different artifact from the collection, flip through its pages, and share the knowledge within. This virtual series is open to the public.  

Registration is required 

“A Look at a Book” is a collaborative program between the Tyler School of Art and Architecture and the Special Collections Research Center (SCRC), Temple University Libraries.
