Artifacts of childhood: 700 years of children’s books – a Newberry Library exhibit

The Newberry Library in Chicago, Illinois, USA, will be mounting an exhibit from Sept 27/08 to Jan 17/09 on Artifacts of Childhood: 700 Years of Children’s Books.

The exhibit will showcase over sixty books from the Middle Ages to the present day, featuring books from Europe, the Americas and Asia in many languages (a small faction of the 10,000 + collection of children’s books in all the world’s languages). In conjunction with the exhibit, there will be a series of lectures and other events. I shall post when information becomes available.
