Indexing the Leaves: Zuck Botanical Books Collection

Curated by Karen Azoulay
United Methodist Archives and History Center and Main Library
The beauty and art of botanical books will be on display in this artistic exhibit of material from Drew’s Special Collections. Developed by special guest curator, Karen Azoulay, this exhibit highlights the artistry of botany through an exploration of the Zuck Botanical Books collection. Azoulay, a Brooklyn-based multi-disciplinary artist, will use her artistic vision to create an exhibition wholly unique to Drew and its library.

The Zuck Collection of Botanical Books is a gift of Lois E. Jackson (C ’63). Jackson’s donation is named in honor of Florence and Robert K. Zuck, distinguished former professors of botany at Drew University. The collection was developed by Jackson beginning in the 1960s and represents her love of and dedication to botanical drawings and written works.

This exhibit explores their lives beyond the concerts, parties and gold records, as well as the backstories of other giants who shaped rock and roll during its prime years.
