Orient Expressions Exhibit

Orient Expressions exhibit curated by Ying Liu and Tad Suzuki

This exhibition highlights Chinese and Japanese rare books and manuscripts from UVic Libraries’ Special Collections. Rare materials featuring unique craftsmanship – such as calligraphy and seals – are a window into the book arts in China and Japan. This exhibition features publications and objects including a Chinese imperial edict issued by the Jianquing Emperor (1760-1820), publications produced by early Chinese immigrants in Victoria, graphic novels from the 19th century to present-day manga, early Japanese photographs, seals and seal art, and travel literature and art from the early 19th century.
