"Join Erin Rutherford, Collection Development Librarian, as she discusses an artist-designed publisher's binding from the Collection of the E. P. Taylor Library and Archives. This short talk will focus on the book’s cover design in the Art Nouveau style and offer a glimpse into the life and work of its creator, Alice Cordelia Morse. How was Morse’s work rediscovered? How was the artist connected to the book’s illustrator? Might an inscription on the book’s endpapers reveal its previous owner?.."
