  • Paper was born in China sometime before the first century C.E. Over the next 1500 years it spread through Asia and across the Silk Road to the Middle East and Europe. Along the way, works on paper became a medium of cultural exchange, through maps, drawings, travelers’ tales, and translations. This exhibit of books, maps, and prints from Wake Forest collections traces these interactions from the early modern period through the 19th century.
  • Books are familiar tools for providing readers with emotional comfort, intellectual content, and soaring inspiration, but are and can be so much more--as objects, they also represent the capacity of art and form to further connect with readers and non-readers alike. Join Special Collections & Archives as we share intriguing examples of the book arts contributed by local artists and Wake Forest students.
