Avery Classics is pleased to announce its newest online exhibit, Viewbooks : Window into America. Drawing on last year’s reading room display, Viewbooks : Window into America features a selection of 50 viewbooks from Avery’s extensive holdings — more than 4,000 titles representing hundreds of American cities and towns. This online exhibit approaches the viewbook genre from two directions – geographic and topical. Subcategories include night views, disaster views and views of the developing West. Through this exhibit we hope to highlight our viewbook collection as an important source of documentation of the built environment in America in the late-19th and early-20th centuries and, as such, an important resource for our patrons.
