What's On

Flood waters, flames, ultraviolet light, and absent-mindedness – what do all of these things have in common? They are all enemies of books.

Join conservator Alice Cannon for a contemplation on how books can be lost, destroyed, damaged and saved. Accompanied by a small display of damaged books from the Museum's library.

Part of Melbourne Rare Book week.
