New cards and captivating canvases are the latest items to emerge from UBC Library Vault (, where you can find hundreds of images from the Library’s rare and special collections.


The 4.25” x 5.5” card sets feature striking images based on topics including Japanese fairytales, books as art objects, 19th-century floral illustrations, an illuminated Spanish manuscript and much more. The sets are beautifully packaged for gift-giving as well – so make sure to select some for those near and dear before they sell out.


If you’d like to enjoy Vault images on a grander scale, then you’ll be happy to hear about UBC Library Vault Canvas Treasures. These feature select images on canvas giclée, dazzling the eye with archival-quality inks and premium canvas. Images can be printed in various sizes; each one is gallery wrapped on a wooden frame and accompanied by a letter of provenance.
