University Libraries Present Student’s Exhibit on The ABC’s Of Fashion


Ball State University graduate student Lauren Bronowski has created a unique exhibit, The ABC’s Of FASHION, for Archives and Special Collections from her final honor’s thesis submission.

The thesis abstract describes her project in this way: “Illuminated manuscripts, ornately illustrated texts, were popular in the Middle Ages.  The ABCs of Fashion is a modern take on illuminated manuscripts.  It combines the design of typography with fashion. Each letter of the alphabet represents a fashion-related term that is then illustrated and defined. Various media were used to complete the illustrations- markers, colored pencils, watercolor pencils and Adobe Illustrator, a computer aided design software.  The project was created to fuse passions and education while pushing the limits of ability.”

Lauren’s display can be viewed in the exhibit cases on the north side of Archives and Special Collections on the second floor of Bracken Library (BL210) from June 9, 2014 to July 5, 2014. For more information, call 285-5078 or email
