Ashmolean Museum Oxford

The Great Bookcase Magnet


The Great Bookcase magnet featuring artwork inspired by the Colour Revolution exhibition.

The magnet comes presented on an Ashmolean branded backing card.

The Ashmolean’s extraordinarily colourful Great Bookcase (1859–62) was the centrepiece of the Exhibition’s Medieval Court.  At three meters high, the bookcase echoes the polychrome porch of a Gothic cathedral, although its style is more eclectic.
