In collaboration with Barbican, London, we shared some of our cel-ga, books and woodblock prints published in the Edo period that had a direct impact on manga as we know it today. The exhibition is currently on tour and will be exhibited at The Design Society in Shenzhen, China from March to June 2019. We will continue to publish exhibition updates and documentation on our website.
