Treasures from the AHO Library
Retrieving forgotten treasures from the library´s secret scores, Treasures from the AHO Library presents eleven publications spanning journals, books, maps. and catalogues, and ranging from the eighteenth century to the twentieth, from Schinkel to IKEA. The essays investigate the content of the publications, of course, but also the origin and history of the specific copy in the library. The selected publications are not necessarily the rarest or most valuable, but the ones that elicit tales about provenance, acquisition, and use, and thus highlight the library itself as an institution. These printed treasures show a library in constant transformation, from Tegneskolen´s modest collection to the present-day digital regime of Oria.
