New York, NY, April 24, 2014— The Morgan Library & Museum has received, as a gift from a Trustee, a major new work by internationally acclaimed American book artist Richard Minsky (b. 1947). Titled The Morgan Register, it is a book of mostly blank paper, with endpapers and several internal pages of photographs by Minsky of The Morgan’s galleries, library, and architectural details.
The book will be kept in the Morgan's Director's office and distinguished guests will be asked to sign it as a record of their visit. Made of archival materials and constructed with traditional craftsmanship, it is expected to last as long as any of the books in the Morgan’s collection, some of which are over 1,000 years old.
