For centuries, women have utilized and innovated the printed word to convey their unique experiences and to advance the literary development of their societies. In Formation: Women’s Voices in Print, Genre, and Form celebrates the role of women in print by surveying the Bentley Rare Book Museum’s rich holdings of historic books and manuscripts produced in the English-speaking world. Through informative panels, engaging interactives, and a diverse selection of books, prints, and artistic works, In Formation amplifies the creative expressions of women through the lens of the printed word. The exhibition is on view at the Bentley Rare Book Museum from October 2022 until October 2023.
