The books in The Art of the Book from East to West section of the exhibition formed a rich anthology of works representing several cultures. They ranged from a collection of ancient poetry illustrated with a watercolor by Auguste Renoir from the library of Victor Hugo and a 15th century Shahnama copied and illustrated in Herat to an illuminated Book of Hours produced in mediaeval Europe and a Book of Insects illustrated with woodcuts by the great Japanese artist Utamaro. All the books featured bindings of incomparable beauty.
