The exhibition was held January 26 – March 30, 2013 at the Museum of Contemporary Art of Georgia. The RISD Library has a unique collection of Ruth Laxson’s bookmaking process and personal archives as well as nearly 40 of her artist’s books. Several objects from this collection were loaned for the exhibition.
