For most, swords and armor are the first things that come to mind when speaking of a samurai exhibition. But the world of the samurai had so much more to show. Some samurais were even printers. One of them was Tokugawa Ieyasu.
The exhibit features some 180 books, including books of superior design from Japan, Germany, Holland, Austria, Canada, China, and as well as books accepted for the Best Book Design from all over the World 2016, which is held every year in March at the Leipzig Book Fair.
The general exhibition is divided into five major periods in the history of printing, from the birth of the craft to the present day. Visitors will learn how printing, a communication medium, shaped the civilization in which we live.
After touring the exhibition zones, you will come to a small glass house. This is our printing workshop, known as the "Printing House", a hands-on exhibit where visitors can actually experience printing for themselves in accordance with the theme of this section: "Create".
You will be impressed by special curved screen and a supercomputer stored in the machine room when you join the theater program.
