Artists’ Books and a Talk on Rome: Two Upcoming Events at ENVI

The Environmental Design Library is offering another of its popular hands-on artists’ books events, on Friday January 27 from 4 to 6 pm. Artists’ books defy conventional “reading” and involve the viewer through sight, touch and physical manipulation. The focus for this upcoming event is books related to cities and towns.

Hands-On 7: Reading the City
Friday, January 27, 2017 from 4:00 – 6:00pm
210 Wurster Hall

In keeping with the theme of cities, on Tuesday January 31, a CED alumna and her coauthor will present their new book about the history of one of the greatest cities. Rome: An Urban History from Antiquity to the Present explores the urban processes by which Rome’s people and leaders, both as custodians of its illustrious past and as agents of its expansive power, have shaped and conditioned its urban fabric.
