New Exhibit on Forgery at the Folger Shakespeare Library

A new exhibit on "Fakes, Forgeries and Facsimiles" will be at the Folger Shakespeare Library in Washington, DC, from August 20, 2003, through January 3, 2004. The Folger's curators will display items from their respective collections that may deceive the viewer -- some by design and some unintentionally. The exhibition explores the differences between forgeries and fakes, fakes and facsimiles, the techniques employed to produce them, and the use of scientific analysis to detect them.
