This Web exhibit is based on the exhibit “Printing for the Modern Age: Commerce, Craft, and Culture in the RR Donnelley Archive,” which was on view in the Special Collections Research Center, the University of Chicago Library, September 2006 - February 2007. The exhibit marked the gift of the RR Donnelley Archive to the University of Chicago by the R.R. Donnelley and Sons Company. The exhibit was curated by Kim Coventry, who worked with the corporate archives at RR Donnelley as a curatorial consultant for fourteen years. Maija Anderson, Archives and Manuscripts Accessions Manager in Special Collections, contributed additional research and writing. Daniel Meyer, Associate Director and University Archivist in Special Collections, was the coordinator and editor for the exhibit; Kerri Sancomb, Exhibit Specialist in Special Collections, produced the exhibit.
An illustrated catalogue, Printing for the Modern Age: Commerce, Craft, and Culture in the RR Donnelley Archive, was published in conjunction with the exhibit. Text for this exhibit is available online.
