Craft: The Woodcut in Early Printed Books is a Library of Congress
exhibition that presents for the first time all the woodcut-illustrated
books purchased by Lessing J. Rosenwald at the Dyson Perrins
sale, now part of the legendary Rosenwald Collection at the Library
of Congress. These books were printed within the first century
after Gutenberg mastered the art of printing with moveable type.
The physical exhibition is no longer on view
at the Library.
