Rare Books from Local Collections in MAM Exhibition

Celebrate Libraries® had the privilege in 2016-2018 of producing videos with digital imagery from two rare British liturgical books in a private Wisconsin collection.

Those works, a Book of Hours Sarum Use Manuscript c. 1400 and The Boies Penrose II Decorated Manuscript, are currently on view through June 16, 2019 in an exhibition at the Milwaukee Art Museum. The Art of Devotion: Illuminated Manuscripts from Local Collections may be viewed in the European Art Galleries, Level 2, Gallery S202.
