Cabinet of curiosities

Floor 2

On the second floor of the library, you will find an entire room devoted to works that are out of the ordinary because of their format or rarity. This cabinet of book curiosities is gradually expanding as we come into contact with children’s authors, book designers and illustrators. It offers readers the possibility of seeing and handling a diverse collection of artists’ books and original works (handwritten books, painted books, engravings, etc.). Here you will find, for example, books by Richard Long, Etel Adnan, Marcel Broodthaers, and Kiki Smith, original editions by Dieter Roth, Henri Chopin, and Irma Blank, and a number of one-of-a-kind editions.
