The Michael Schwartz Library's Special Collections has recently put up two exciting displays in their area, RT 320. The first display is to celebrate the dedication of the Viktor Schreckengost Collection to the Michael Schwartz Library. Schreckengost, is an internationally known artist and industrial designer. The display features Salem China Co. pieces designed, decorated and patented by Viktor Schreckengost, bisque figurines, and scale model pedal cars.
Also on display, is the Octavofest exhibit, which features two categories of books. Showcase 1 displays samples of 18th century French Bridge Books, from our Watson Collection of civil engineering works. Showcase 2 presents typography samples, with locally published 19th century books in the German language, printed in Fraktür, and an early 20th century work with typical Arts and Crafts font and decoration.
Ongoing displays include our streetcar models collected by Morris Stone (early to mid 20th century builds), signed streetscape prints by local artist Martin Linsey, model ships of the Victory, and various framed works representing the rich industrial, maritime, and transportation history of Northeast Ohio.
Stop by and check them out!
