Book Arts at the Baltimore Book Festival
Book Arts at the festival will highlight artists, businesses and organizations whose work and craft (graphic design, illustration, printmaking, etc.), pertain to the bookmaking and book preserving arts. The Book Arts Gallery will be located inside The Walters Art Museum Sculpture Court. Entrance to the exhibition corridor is directly off of Charles Street, within the festival footprint.

Guided Exhibition Tours: Living by the Book: Monks, Nuns, and their Manuscripts
Today, medieval books are treated as works of art, untouchable treasures to be locked away in cabinets. Yet many were intended for regular use as vital components of everyday life for monks and nuns. Learn more about these medieval books, as Walter’s Art Museum docents guide you.
