    This focus exhibition will explore that moment of tension, beginning with Gutenberg's Bible in 1455, when printing was a new, experimental medium. The result was a fascinating interplay of formats that led to hybrid works, failed experiments, and entirely new forms of books. This story is especially pertinent now, as we are experiencing our own technological revolution, moving from printed book to digital publishing. The exhibition is also an opportunity to show the digital surrogates that the Walters is producing through its NEH-funded digitization project.
