The Rare Books & Manuscripts Library of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

for “Marcel Proust: Writing Without End.”


“Celebrating the 100th anniversary of the publication of 'Du côté de chez Swann' ('Swann’s Way'), this visually striking brochure demonstrates a high quality of production with nicely chosen photos and manuscript illustrations and good use of color,” stated Williams. “In addition, illustrated with striking portrait of Proust, it makes interesting use of font/typography and scores high marks for its intellectual content. The brochure also contains an entire checklist of the exhibition items on the rear panel.”
