Book Spine Poetry

As a theological library, Princeton Theological Seminary Library encourages you to be creative, think deeply and look at things in new ways. This October, why not channel a little of that creativity into turning our print collections into art? Create a book spine poem for Theological Libraries Month and share it on Twitter with the hashtag #TLM2014. Not on Twitter? Not a problem! Just email a picture of your poem to libweb[at]ptsem[dot]edu.

Here's an example of a book spine poem from books in the Karl Barth Collection:

Movements of grace
Tracking the footsteps
The mystery of God
The crucified among the crossbearers
Paths not taken
Ever against the stream
