"Hon de Nihon: Books and Print Works
as a Gateway to Japanese Culture"
Hon de Nihon (Book and Japan) is a collaborative exhibition created by undergraduate students in the course JPN 405: An Introduction to Japanese Publishing Culture. Students spent the fall semester studying the history of the book and print culture in Japan comparatively with the rest of the world. They investigated the concept of books as physical and artifactual objects and prepared both a physical exhibition, online exhibition, and written paper on a particular aspect of the course using materials from the Rare Books collection at the Special Collections Research Center, as well as works from the Little Fine Arts Library and private collections.
Exhibits will be on display in the Great Hall from December 10, 2014, until January 28, 2015.
The Margaret I. King Library is open to the public Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
