Heavenly Craft: The Woodcut in Early Printed Books (A Library of Congress Exhibition)




This Library of Congress exhibition presents, for the first time, all the woodcut-illustrated books purchased by Lessing J. Rosenwald at the Dyson Perrins sale, now part of the legendary Rosenwald Collection at the Library of Congress. These books were printed within the first century after Gutenberg mastered the art of printing with moveable type.
