Heavenly Craft: The Woodcut in Early Printed Books

A Heavenly Craft: The Woodcut in Early Printed Books is a Library of Congress exhibition that presents for the first time all the woodcut-illustrated books purchased by Lessing J. Rosenwald at the Dyson Perrins sale, now part of the legendary Rosenwald Collection at the Library of Congress. These books were printed within the first century after Gutenberg mastered the art of printing with moveable type.

The physical exhibition is no longer on view at the Library.

This exhibition was made possible by the generous support of Arthur Ortenberg and Elisabeth Claiborne, The Long Island Community Foundation–Krasnoff Family Fund, Fred Krimendahl and Emilia Saint-Amand, and Mr. and Mrs. Henry J. (Bud) Smith.
