(SPOT.ph) The weekdays are always busy, which means we bookworms look forward to weekends that we can spend escaping the stress of work and life through the written word. This Saturday (March 14), the Filipinas Heritage Library is offering a new way to have that adventure with Never Say "Never Judge a Book by Its Cover."
The latest lecture in The Printed Word series, Professor May Jurilla, PhD underscores the value of the book cover by discussing its history, function, and the art behind its design. Professor Jurilla has the rather cool title of being the country’s first book historian after receiving her doctorate on the subject from the School of Oriental African Studies in the University of London.
In addition to the lecture, Professor Jurilla also curated a special exhibit at the Ayala Museum, featuring iconic books like Flora de Filipinas by Augustinian priest and botanist Manuel Blanco and more titles from the Rare Books Collection of the Filipinas Heritage Library, the Roderick Hall Collection, and the Pedro Ortiz Armengol Collection.
The Filipinas Heritage Museum and the Ayala Museum is at Makati Avenue corner De La Rosa Street, Greenbelt Park, Makati City. For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 759-8288 local 36 or 45. Tickets are P300 for adults and P150 for students, senior citizens, Ayala Group of Companies employees and members of Filipinas Heritage Library and Ayala Museum. Lecture fees include admission to the museum exhibitions.
