Part Three: The Aramont Library At The Library of Congress

Mandy Jackson-Beverly

Welcome to the third and final episode regarding The Aramont Library at the Library of Congress. In this episode, I chat with the Collector's daughter who shares stories about her father's love of books, and the impetus behind donating the collection to the Library of Congress.

On February 11, 2021, the Library of Congress announced they had received a private donation, known as the Aramont Library, containing rare books by important authors and artists. In addition, the Aramont Foundation donated a $1 million endowment to fund virtual public programming beginning in 2021.

The Aramont Library began in the early 1980s and contains 1,700 volumes, comprised of literary first editions, illustrated books, exhibition bindings, finely bound author collections, and books by some of the most influential artists of the 19thand 20th centuries. It also includes rich examples from the livre d'artist movement of the 20th century.

Enjoy!
