Spring Break Hours for Special Collections

March 18, 2024

Please note special hours for Special Collections during spring break for UW-Madison: open 1-5 PM, Monday-Friday, March 25-29, 2024.

We will resume our customary hours on Monday, April 1 (really).

In the spirit of spring, despite the chilly forecast for the beginning of spring break, the illustration above shows the front cover of Flowers from hill and dale (1883), a volume of poems arranged and illustrated by Susie Barstow Skelding. Images of the cover and spine of this title are included in Publishers’ Bindings Online, 1815-1930: The Art of Books.
