On Wednesday, October 14, 1998, over seventy members of the Grolier Club left New York to travel to Ravenna and Venice to discover Venice's legacy of books and publishing. While on their trip, they visited celebrated libraries, the deserted island of Torcello, the great Palladian homes of the Veneto, and more. The adventure lasted until October 25, 1998.
The Grolier Club Iter Veneticum provides an itinerary of the trip with detailed descriptions of their journey. Seventeen contributions by participants are included describing historical information on the collections and buildings visited on the tour, personal photographs, and artwork. Various drawings, references, and a list of travelers are also included. The Mosaics of Ravenna, Theodric's Tomb, Palazzo, and Canova are a few of the locations visited.
The book was designed by Scott Vile and printed by the Ascensius Press.
