Corpus Christi College, one of the oldest self-governing colleges at the University of Oxford, marked its 500th anniversary by sharing a selection of manuscripts and early printed books with America for the first time. The exhibition, located at the Folger Library, presented biographical information about the founders of the collection, documents titled "the most important collection of Anglo-Jewish manuscripts in the world," and ground-breaking works such as Galileo’s first observation of the moon using a telescope, Sir Isaac Newton’s observations of Halley’s comet, and Vesalius’ studies of the human body. Riggs Ward designed the graphics, casework, exterior signage, brochure and family guide, as well as a graphic identity for the online exhibition.
