DESCRIPTION

Twice a month artist Ohie Toshio will be present in the exhibition Ohie Toshio and the Perfection of the Japanese Book  to answer questions and talk with visitors about the art of book design. Ohie introduced decorative bookbinding to Japan in 1974 after studying the art form in France for five years. He will discuss how he adjusted the style to appeal to Japanese taste and the ways in which he collaborates with other artists in the fields of graphic design, printmaking, photography, and calligraphy.
