Objet d’art

Library member Naomi Dallob has donated, and Library president Deborah Ginocchio has had framed, the newest addition to our collection of objet d’art, the oldest intact collection of public art in the city.  This woodcut on paper likeness of the master of mystery and the macabre, by Benjamin Miller (Cincinnati, OH, 1877-1964) graces the left pillar at the circulation desk, and connects visually with Brenda Tarbell’s two splendid ceramic ravens perched atop shelves at each end of the reading room.

His grim stare is meant to inspire fear in overdue borrowers of library books.

Thanks Naomi and Deborah!
