1 - 4 p.m. | Quayle Bible Collection Tours

Collins Library

Baker University's Quayle Bible Collection brings together significant Bibles and related materials. The current exhibit is Illuminating the Bible: Woodcuts and Engravings. Since ancient times, book texts were made more vivid and engaging with miniature paintings, pen-and-ink drawings, gold leaf and even doodles. This was a time-consuming process resulting in one-of-a-kind books. But with the advent of the printing press, lovely illustrations could be mass produced right along with texts using woodcuts and, later, engravings. Some of the finest artists of every era were engaged in book production. Illuminating the Bible shows how artists through the ages have interpreted and supplemented the biblical text.
