Everyone, this weekend is your LAST CHANCE to check out "Illuminated Palaces." After Monday (Oct. 28), all those fantastic extra-illustrated books go off view and head back into the vaults. SO COME SEE THEM.

UPDATE: Ha! Just kidding. We’ve extended the exhibition to Nov. 18, so you have some extra time.
