Ehon at the NYPL

On a recent trip to New York City via the always convenient JetBlue, the pleasant discovery of a great book exhibition at the New York Public Library just made a great trip even better. Ehon: The Artist and the Book in Japan is up until Feb 4, 2007. Over 280 items in this show... Awe-inspiring and just plain inspiring for any book artist or book lover. The cost of admission ($0) and the bagel & coffee breakfast from the vendor cart across the street, enjoyed on the NYPL steps café tables ($1.85) prove that NYC can be a great bargain as well.
