- The Material Text collection consists of objects related to the history of the book and the physical processes involved in book production. This "collection" is an artificial one as it has been assembled by Kislak Center curators from many sources and will continue growing with new additions. The main purpose in aggregating these objects in one physical collection is to allow their use in teaching the history of printing and the book.
