Decoded: Freemasonry’s Illustrated Rulebooks shows how freemasons used the frontispiece to communicate messages. It shows how they were a propaganda tool in the rivalry between the Grand Lodges.

Between 1723 and 1819, two rival Grand Lodges of England published their rulebooks or Constitutions. During this period you would buy a book without a cover. So if a book had an illustration beside the title page, called a frontispiece, the book would be more valuable. As a result there were six frontispieces created for the Grand Lodges’ Constitutions. You can decode these frontispieces for yourself, and learn about the Grand Lodges and the artists behind them.

Open to all, admission is free.
