Opening: Friday, January 13, 2017, 5 pm
in the Sansovino hall of the National Marciana Library- Piazza San Marco, Venice, Italy.

The big book METROPOLIS and the artist's books of the Centro Internazionale della Grafica di Venezia is exhibited in the Sansovino hall of the National Marciana Library.

My copy-etching was based on the map of Venice with Tenshō embassy who were the first Japanese Embassy to Europe. So to exhibit the my work especially in the National Marciana Library has an important meaning with the Japanese print history!
