A blog for Texas State University's School of Art & Design faculty, students, or anyone interested about art and art resources in the library or anywhere. A place to share information about art, artists, design, and designers.
You can get to the Subject Guides from their homepage by going to the Tools and Resources link at the very top line of navigation on the page. I have put a red box around the link in the second screenshot in this post as well as red boxes around the Subject Guides, Teaching Resources, and Timelines of World Art.

TheCodices, Facsimiles, and Manuscripts in the Alkek
Collections Exhibit is on the 1st floor of the Alkek Library from now until September 30th.
While books aren’t the only things you find in libraries
today, they still define us. Much goes into the production of a book,
from the author’s hand written, drawn, or typed manuscript to the printed book
itself. Come see examples of codices, manuscripts and facsimiles of
earliest to more contemporary books in the Alkek Library collections.
have put examples of our large collection of Mesoamerican codices on one side,
along with traditional Mesoamerican textiles. Most are facsimile
volumes of the glyphs and art and a volume explaining what is being said.
In one case we have an exact facsimile of the Codex Murúa, reproduced on velum.
On another side we have a true facsimile of Leonardo da Vinci’s notebook,
now called the Codex Leicester. Included in the exhibit are two real and
rare 17 th and 18th century printed books, part of a
larger collection of theological work gifted to the Alkek Library.
