Turning the Book Wheel
A tumblr of semi-random stuff from the stacks of the Smithsonian Libraries
10 of September, 2013

For fashion week some styles pour l’homme circa 1919. From the beautifully illustrated French magazine La guirlande : album mensuel d’art et de littératur (1919) which was produced in a limited edition of 800. The copy belonging to the Libraries was a gift of “the Misses Hewitt.” 

Sarah and Eleanor Hewitt opened a gallery in New York City on the fourth floor of the Cooper Union, the free school for adults founded by their grandfather, Peter Cooper, in 1897 Their gallery has since become the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum, Smithsonian Institution, a national center for the study and appreciation of art and design.
