During library hours

dlr LexIcon, 8 May-31 August

Nigel Curtin, dlr Local Studies Librarian, presents a short taster exhibition of promotional material held in the Local Studies Collections at dlr LexIcon. Fitting into that ‘grey’ literature of library holdings, these posters and pamphlets have recently been selected from the Local History collection for digitisation. This display highlights the importance of digitising such ephemeral material for posterity, capturing those moments in time, in addition to showcasing design trends, fashion and taste, so illustrative of social mores and local history.
