“Picturing Words: The Power of Book Illustration,” a panel exhibit created for the Smithsonian Institution Libraries by National Museum of American History curators Helena Wright and Joan Boudreau, will showcase reproductions of some of the world's greatest pieces of illustration from the Libraries’ collection of rare books and documents. The individual panels vividly demonstrate how illustrations catch readers’ eyes, draw them into their reading material and make a more direct connection to the information.swem.wm.edu/exhibits/index.cfm
