The Shape of Content

There is an excellent show up at Bridwell Library right now called The Shape of Content. The main focus of the show is the varied presentation of manuscript and printed media. Featured works include manuscripts, books, broadsides, and readable objects.  I recommend taking a look at the heart shaped prayer book.  In it’s unbroken form it would have “bloomed” open like a flower in order to be read.
