Join curators Anna Welch and Des Cowley for a special tour of World of the book, 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.

This event is in partnership with Rare Book Week.
