From Adhesive Binding to the Art Book


March 8 to Mai 28, 2012

The cabinet exhibition focuses on two special types of
collecting and presenting graphics: the volumes with
adhesive bindings that collectors used from the 16th to the
18th centuries to group sketches and engravings by various
artists, and the art books that have been an important
means of artistic expression and a field for experimentation
since the closing days of the 19th century.
