Gutenberg Bible Case and First Photo Case

Merit Award
Gutenberg Bible Case and First Photo Case, Harry Ransom Center, Pentagram

The Ransom Center at the University of Texas at Austin houses thirty million literary manuscripts, one million rare books, five million photographs, and over 100,000 works of art. Highlights include the Gutenberg Bible (c. 1455) and the world's first photograph (c. 1826). Both the Bible case and the first photo case were displayed in the lobby of the Center and viewed in such a way that best represented their individual history, without obscuring the entrance. The displays allowed the viewer to walk around and fully experience the objects.
