Summary
"Accompanying an exhibition of the same name at the Grolier Club in New York and at Winterthur, The Winterthur Library Revealed: Five Centuries of Design and Inspiration includes essays and entries on the founding of the library and all aspects of its collections. Ranging from printed patterns of the 16th century to colonial-revival design drawings of the 20th, the five centuries of books, drawings, and ephemera illustrated within represent the work of artisans, manufacturers, advertisers, and countless other hands through which the material surroundings of our everyday lives have passed. Each highlights the ways in which library resources contribute greatly to the stories of decorative arts objects."--Jacket
