ART OF THE BOOK COLLECTION

 

NINGYO: Japanese Dolls

The Art of the Book Collection showcases books that are beautifully designed and produced and that challenge traditional ideas about the architecture of book design. Individual works from the collection are continually on display throughout the Library on a rotating basis.
 
This colorful display in the Library’s lobby focuses on three categories of dolls, including ichimatsu ningyo (depicting young Japanese children), musha ningyo (depicting heroic warriors) and isho ningyo (depicting folk culture). The dolls were purchased from temples sales around Kyoto by Noelle Spychala. They will be displayed until the end of January.
