Be Sure to Visit the Marking Time Exhibition

The current Guild of Book Workers (GBW) national exhibit, Marking Time, opened in Minneapolis this May, and is currently touring the country. For those of you who have been patiently waiting for it to arrive here in the Pacific Northwest, your wait is over! The exhibit has finally opened at the Suzzallo/Allen Library at the University of Washington, in Seattle. Marking Time will be on display through February 19, 2010.

he books will be displayed in three separate locations within the Suzzallo/Allen Library. Through January 6, only two parts of the exhibition will be open. Between January 6 and February 19, all three parts of the exhibition will be on display. Please note that the Special Collections Lobby exhibition space has shorter hours than the Suzzallo/Allen Library and is not open on Saturdays.
