The exhibit features a collection of books recently donated by Kit Marx of Edmonds, Wash., an educator whose focus on natural history led him to the books of Eric Sloane.
M r. Marx became fascinated by the books that had personalized illustrations known as remarques, small personalized drawings or symbols that an artist adds near his or her signature.
The museum at 31 Kent-Cornwall Road (Route 7), just north of downtown Kent, is open Fridays through Sundays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. through Oct. 31.
Admission is $8 for adults, $6 for senior citizens, $5 for children aged 6 to 17 and free for children aged 5 and under.
