The McGill Library is pleased to present an innovative exhibit on the work of Robert Reid, including over 20 book designs and a selection from more than 250 pieces of job printing viewable on a Touch Table. It features more than 50 samples of new graphic designs from Reid’s current work as Digital Experimental Typographer.
The latest Marvin Duchow Music Library exhibit explores the history of recorded sound through its rare collection of 20th century recordings and related ephemera. Cylinder, shellac, and vinyl records with varying disc and groove sizes, speeds, composition materials, colours and uses offer insight into the evolution of the medium.
The exhibition is in two parts. The first part is devoted to the Battle of Vimy Ridge and to the memorial dedicated by King Edward the 8th in 1936 at Vimy. The second part of the exhibition is devoted to remembrance; to the memorials and to the memorialization of the bravery and sacrifices of Canada’s men and women during the First World War. Part I opens on the 7th of April and continues through November; part II, will open on the 19th of May and continue to September 22nd.

Established in Anatolia in the 13th century, the Ottoman Empire progressively expanded its domination to the Balkans, parts of Southeast and Central Europe, Western Asia, the Caucasus, and North Africa. At the beginning of the 17th century, the empire ruled over 32 provinces, and a population of approximately thirty million. Encircling the Mediterranean, with Constantinople (today’s Istanbul) as its capital, this incredibly powerful state remained at the center of interactions between the East and the West until 1922.
