The Ramseyer Collection
« on: July 12, 2019, 04:37:56 PM »
The university library asked me to make a sign for a new display case showcasing rare books from the Ramseyer Northern Bible Society Collection.  It contains over 2000 religious texts from the 1230s to the 20th century, in hundreds of languages, including several varieties of Braille.  A first edition KJV, a very rare 4th edition Great Bible, manuscripts of the Koran and the Torah from the 13th and 14th centuries, and facsimiles of both the Gutenberg and the Saint John's Bible!  I get to bring students in to use the collection and curate displays, but the old title sign for the displays was just a piece of paper printed with plain san serif letters taped to the case!
