THE GROLIER CLUB OF NEW YORK was one of the first organizations in America to treat books and prints as objects worthy of display, on par with painting and sculpture. In its 139-year history the Club has organized more than five hundred such exhibitions on topics ranging from Blake to Kipling, from chess to murder mysteries, from Japanese prints (the poster for an 1896 Grolier Japanese print exhibition is shown here) to Art Nouveau posters. There are three shows a year in the ground floor gallery, all open to the public free of charge.

In addition, the Club mounts each year four smaller-scaleĀ  exhibitions in our second floor gallery featuring the collections of Grolier Club members.

Below is a short list of the exhibitions with online surrogates, all of which can be browsed on our Exhibitions page.
