You may have noticed… JPL’s online rare books exhibition has moved! Previously found on the JPL’s main website, the profiles of our most popular rare books are now settling in comfortably to their new home on JPL-Curates, along with some never before published content from our Archives and Special Collections. 

As part of the Azrieli Foundation’s three-year funding initiative, the Archives and Special Collections team created this digital platform to showcase some of the oldest, rarest and most unusual items held in the archives and special collections here at the JPL. With new high-quality images and videos aimed at embracing the tactile beauty of the books, documents, photographs, and artifacts, accompanied by carefully researched texts to provide context to the exhibitions, this website is the next best thing to holding the items yourself. Digital storytelling is one of material history’s best friends: JPL-Curates attempts to transpose actual storytelling into words and images which together, create a narrative landscape with a borderless space.

Check back again soon for new additions to the website that will be ongoing; more rotating featured exhibitions, oral history interviews, and a podcast project are in the works.
