Worth Ten Thousand Words

The collections of printed illustrated books in Senate House Library are a particularly rich and varied resource. They reflect the history of book illustration from the birth of printing in the fifteenth century to modern times. To give an insight into the sheer variety of material, some of the books on display will be changed from time to time over the period the exhibition is running.
