Join the Department of Museums, Archives and Rare Books at Kennesaw State University for the opening of the first rare book museum in metro Atlanta on April 22, 2017! The Bentley Rare Book Museum, previously the Bentley Rare Book Gallery, looks forward to engaging with you through dynamic programming, free museum admission, and rotating exhibitions.
This hands-on exhibition of medieval manuscripts explores the book-making process and provides the opportunity to interact with reproduction manuscripts and tools of the era.
The exhibition features the vibrant and growing field of handmade artists’ books, including a selection of rare books created in the last ten years from the Bentley Museum’s collection.
This micro-exhibition takes a look into the 25-year history of the Bentley Gallery, originally designed to represent a middle-class English library c. 1760-1820.
