"To Place", by the visual artist Roni Horn, is a series of ten titles focused upon Iceland and Horn’s relationship to it. It is an open series with no pre-determined end point. While the set constitutes what Horn describes as an encyclopedia, the subjects treated and the flow from one volume to the next are idiosyncratic rather than systematic.

Two Stanford University Library branches have recently launched stunning new websites: Special Collections & University Archives and the Art & Architecture Library.
Both of these sites take full advantage of the many features available on the new SUL website. Most visible on each site is a content-rich slide show that highlights the unique collections and activities of these two libraries. The Art & Architecture site currently features an online exhibit of works in its current physical exhibition, "Models from the Architectural Design Program" (which you should rush over to see: it closes on June 1). The online exhibit features beautiful original photography by our Assistant Art Librarian Anna Fishaut.

The Art & Architecture Library is pleased to present the latest exhibition in its "Permanent Rotation: Works from the Locked Stacks" series: "Four Works by Man Ray." In his repeated engagements with the book as media object, the American artist Man Ray extended the Surrealist fascination with ephemerality into the book form and firmly established it as an acceptable and readily available medium for modern artists.
