UBC exhibition: Charles Van Sandwyk and the Children's Literary Tradition

UBC Library's Rare Books and Special Collections put together a beautiful exhibit revolving around Charles Van Sandwyk and the Children's Literary Tradition. Admission is free and open to the public Monday to Friday, 10 am to 4 pm and Saturday, 12 pm to 5 pm, till October 31. The exhibition also includes works by Walter Crane, Arthur Rackham, and Beatrix Potter. Just by taking in the dreamy, charming quality of the posters (I had to include both of them, I find them irresistible), it is easy to imagine a display meant to delight both children and adults.

Just before the exhibit closes, you will also have a chance to meet Charles Van Sandwyk, on Wednesday, October 30, between 12 and 1:30 pm. The event is free and there will be refreshments.
