Japan 2006

After nearly six years of planning, 'Beautiful British Books', the first exhibition to feature the work of DB in Japan opened on 22 April 2006 at the Ashikaga Museum of Art, and subsequently visited two other venues.

The exhibition was in two parts. The first part, 'Tradition, Flourish and Development', traced the history of the book in Britain, from William Caxton to the private press movement. The second part concentrated on the work of DB. In all, there were over 130 exhibits, with the exhibiting members of DB contributing forty-three bindings, all created specially for this exhibition.
