New Digital Exhibit: "Equal Caricature Under Law"

The Riesenfeld Center and Law Library have released a new digital exhibit:

"Equal Caricature Under Law: Supreme Court Bobbleheads by The Green Bag"

"Equal Caricature Under Law: Supreme Court Bobbleheads by The Green Bag," showcases a complete collection of Supreme Court bobbleheads, produced by The Green Bag and its editor, Ross Davies. Artful, whimsical, and informative, the Supreme Court bobbleheads depict the "Supremes" in miniature bobbling form, with witty (and annotated) references to their notable opinions. The Law Library's online exhibit also features over 40 volumes drawn from the Riesenfeld Rare Book Center's Arthur C. Pulling Rare Books Collection. From John Jay to John Roberts, Jr., and from the Federalist Papers to Brandeis's dissent in Olmstead v. United States, the exhibit highlights the justices' careers and their contributions to American law.

The new digital exhibit memorializes the Law Library's popular 2016 exhibition of bobbleheads, which was on display in the Riesenfeld Center's gallery.
