University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill: “Graduate Student Combines Passion for Art and the Library”
From UNC at Chapel Hill:
Over the past year, Lulu Zilinskas has combined her passion for books and art to create a project that she hopes will uncover archival items that remain hidden due to perceived access barriers.
To accomplish this, Zilinskas, a graduate assistant at Wilson Library and a graduate student in the UNC School of Information and Library Science, has created cyanotype prints from the rubbings of book covers in the Wilson Special Collections Library.
She originally planned to create multiple forms of prints to showcase the textures and designs of books that are rarely seen by the public, but when the pandemic forced her to change plans, she adapted her project to making the cyanotype prints.
