Most treasures come with mystery and intrigue, and treasures in the book world are no different. With your guide, Audra Loyal, owner of The Vespiary Book Restoration & Bindery, come learn about one of the most extravagant books ever made, The Great Omar - an ornate copy of The Rubáiyát of Omar Khayyám.

Find out why and where it is now while enjoying libations at the Montgomery Distillery.
