Exhibit / Merrill-Cazier Library

A selection of broadsides by the Green Cat Press, from the Merrill-Cazier Library's Special Collections, is on display in the Library's Atrium. Each broadside combines a literary work, such as a poem or essay, with imagery. These fine prints, many resulting from direct collaboration with well-known authors, have themes ranging from cats and nature to the metaphysical. The exhibition may be viewed during regular library hours until early September.
