Harry Ransom Center and PrintAustin

We love the Harry Ransom Center. You can request to see items out of their catalog and they will bring them to the reading room for observation–and the HRC has generously curated two print room exhibits as well as a curator’s tour of their current exhibit for PrintAustin. (The HRC also has a Gutenberg Bible, and since the printmaking world owes so much to the Gutenberg Press, check out one of these historic bibles (only 48 still exist) during your visit.)
