Visit to John Rylands Library and Manchester Metropolitan University Special Collections
The day will start at the John Rylands Library, Deansgate where we will meet in the café at about 11am for coffee. This gives us the opportunity to look around the collections on display, followed by lunch at approximately 12.30-13.30 wherever you prefer. www.library.manchester.ac.uk/rylands/
After lunch we will make our way to MMU, for 14.00 where we will be given an introductory talk about the Special Collections and then we can browse the material on show. Selected items from the Tanya Schmoller Decorated Papers Collection, Arts & Crafts period items and some of the artists’ books will be displayed especially for us. www.specialcollections.mmu.ac.uk/collections.php
