Free Public Exhibitions of Books and Prints Since 1884
THE GROLIER CLUB OF NEW YORK was one of the first organizations in America to treat books and prints as objects worthy of display, on a par with painting and sculpture. In its 135-year history the Club has organized more than five hundred such exhibitions on topics ranging from Blake to Kipling, from chess to murder mysteries, from Japanese prints (the poster for an 1896 Grolier Japanese print exhibition is shown below) to Art Nouveau posters. There are four shows a year in the main ground floor gallery, all open to the public free of charge.
In addition, the Club mounts each year a number of smaller-scale (but equally interesting) exhibitions in our second floor gallery featuring the collections of Grolier Club members.
