Library Company of Philadelphia Print Department

The last few months have been very busy, with a number of antique shows and other travel (I am off on Sunday for the Theta Show in Houston), so my blog postings have fallen off. I just got an email that announced a new on-line exhibit which I thought I should take the time to pass on...

One of my first blogs was about the wonderful Library Company of Philadelphia. I love it here in Denver, but I do miss some things from the East Coast. Its wonderful institutions being one of the main things I miss and the Library Company is at the head of the list of these institutions.

The Library Company always had prints, but it wasn't until 1971 that they appointed Stephanie Munsing as the first Curator of Prints and Photographs. The new on-line exhibition celebrates the 40 years of this department. It demonstrates better than any remarks I can make what a great department this is. Take a look!
