Celebrating World Book Day: Goppion’s Commitment to Preserving Literary Heritage

Article – 22 Apr 2024

As the world celebrates World Book Day, Goppion is proud to reiterate its commitment to the preservation of literary treasures globally. Our mission extends beyond simple display solutions; we aim to safeguard the cultural heritage enshrined in manuscripts and books across some of the world's most esteemed libraries.

At Goppion, our approach to preservation involves the most advanced display technologies. Our cases are meticulously engineered to counteract the potentially damaging effects of temperature fluctuations, humidity, light exposure, and harmful gases. It is our priority to ensure that these priceless artifacts endure for future generations to study and appreciate.

Our collaborations with prestigious institutions are testament to our role as leaders in the field. Among these, we count the Bodleian Libraries in Oxford and the Folger Shakespeare Library in Washington D.C., where our innovations help protect revered collections. In New York, the Grolier Club and the New York Public Library’s Polonsky Exhibition benefit from our tailored display solutions. Across the ocean, in Dublin, the Trinity College Old Library, which houses the iconic Book of Kells, relies on our expertise to preserve this priceless manuscript under optimal conditions.

Furthermore, our impact stretches to Paris at the Bibliothèque nationale de France, and back to the United States at the Library of Congress in Washington D.C., as well as the Boston Athenaeum. Each project is a commitment to our mission, reflecting our dedication to the preservation of global literary heritage.

On this World Book Day, we invite you to reflect on the importance of protecting literary works. They are not merely collections of pages but are vessels of human thought and culture. At Goppion, we understand that behind every book on display, there is a story of civilization, ideas, and history that must be preserved. Explore our collaborations with the world's libraries below.
