Jon Evans, director of the MFAH Hirsch Library, addresses several 20th-century books in the Rienzi Library that comprise unusual or unique designs, each a clear reflection of its time. Books featured include examples from Art Deco, arts and crafts, and fine press traditions. Subjects include Ballads of a Bookworm by Irving Browne (1899) and Ultimo by John and Ruth Vassos (1930).On the third Thursday of each month, Rienzi highlights a great work of art in the Rienzi Collection. Gallery Talks are given by museum curators, conservators, educators, and librarians. Admission is free. Reservations are encouraged. Please call 713. 639.7800.
