Please join us Thursday, May 15 at 6:00PM for a special event:

19th-Century Publishers’ Bindings: One Hundred Years of Mountaineering

Beth Heller, Preservation Librarian, will take examples of interesting bindings from the Library’s Rare Books Room and trace the movement of book production, from an early 1800s example of a hand-bound volume created for a wealthy owner, to a decade-by-decade look at the transformation of book design through innovations in mechanization, mass production, and public readership up to 1900.

The AAC’s collection of Publisher’s Bindings is unique because it gathers a group of truly beautiful gilt and stamped designs portraying mountains and mountaineering. This event is free to FOL members, and $10 to AAC and CMC members and the general public.

Event will be hosted in the Library at:
The American Mountaineering Center
710 Tenth Street
Golden, Colorado 80401
