A is for anatomy, alphabet and AMAZE: A McGill A-Z Experience.
In 2020, the McGill Library put together a truly remarkable book – AMAZE; a McGill A-Z Experience. With visual treats and moveable surprises at the turn of every page, AMAZE inspires interactive moments of wonder with McGill’s extraordinary collections. Brilliant paper engineers from Papersmyths breathed life into 26 alphabetical wonders from the Library’s rare and special collections. Artworks, graphics, books, manuscripts, even physical objects leap from the page in this moveable, interactive book.
The book showcases a playful way of engaging with the collections – making them accessible to all. Feel free to wonder at the pop-up printing press or examine the intricate details in an ancient anatomy text. This alphabet book will take you on a journey, from A to Z with some delightful surprises along the way.
The book will launch in March 2021, coinciding with the bicentennial anniversary of the University. It will be available for sale at Le James Bookstore and local independent booksellers as well.
Attend the book launch on March 30 at noon (EST). Visit the event item on our site for more information or to RSVP!
