Join curators Des Cowley and Anna Welch for a special tour of Mirror of the world: books and ideas, where you will view rare, beautiful and historically significant books, from Audubon’s Birds of America to 1950s pulp fiction and contemporary works of art and design. Located in the galleries overlooking the magnificent La Trobe Reading Room, this exhibition celebrates the unique place of books in our hearts and minds.

Presented as part of Melbourne Rare Book Week.
