2-Day Exhibition ... All 100!

Posted by Dave Bull at 8:31 PM, November 11, 2006

The Library at Atomi University here in Tokyo is holding this weekend a special two-day exhibition of rare and interesting pieces from their famous collection of historical Hyakunin Isshu related items. I knew they planned to include some of my prints, but what I hadn't known was that they were showing all 100!

This is the first time in years that I've seen them all together!

A bit of a 'blast from the past', that's for sure! They did a real nice job with the display; they had transparent sleeves order made to exactly fit the prints ... they've obviously got a better exhibition budget that I have!

And it was nice to see my stuff included together with the other historical items, many of which are extremely rare and important ... scrolls written by emperors of 800 years ago, etc. etc.

It's fun to think of how this stuff will be looked at many hundreds of years from now!
