Inspiring Knowledge is an exhibition that celebrates the opening of the University of Birmingham's new Library by showcasing groundbreaking works from the past 500 years that formed new ways of thinking and inspired generations to come.


Drawn from the University's treasures in the Cadbury Research Library, the exhibition includes original editions of The Nuremberg Chronicle (1543), The Works of Geoffrey Chaucer (1561) and The Fabric of the Human Body by Andreas Vesalius (1543).


Outdoor advertising was used in high-traffic public spaces to promote the exhibition.
