Last Thursday (3/22), The Art of Google Books gallery show had its official opening! It will be up in the space until April 4th, so there’s still plenty of time to check it out (though if you wait, you might miss out on the limited edition buttons created by the good folks at the Arts & Crafts Center).

Here are some more sneak-peek photos of the exhibit. More information here!

A Cataloger’s Look at the Dr. Robert L. Egolf CollectionThe Baldwin Library of Historical Children’s Literature
2nd Floor, Library East (Map)University of Florida George A. Smathers Libraries
November 14, 2011 to January 13, 20129:00am to 4:30pm, Monday through Friday (Calendar)
This exhibit, put together by rare books catalogers at the University of Florida, features all sorts of cool children’s books: the best of Maurice Sendak, lots of autographed copies (including Munro Leaf and Trina Schart Hyman), toy and game books (like The Slant Book), foreign language books, and more!
This case is about the collection’s oddities and surprising morbidity: cannibalism and the plague, skeletons and hallucinations, and lots—lots—of dead children and puppies.

This case brought to you by yours truly: a first edition of Edward Gorey’s The Wuggly Ump (1963), a couple of Caldecott-illustrated tales (including Elegy on the Death of a Mad Dog), and Frank Asch’s hallucinogenic Linda, among others. Floridians should come by and check it out! —kcw
