Japanese Art revisited

Yesterday I went to the New York Public Library to see an exhibit called: Ehon: The Artist and the Book in Japan. The exhibition was huge, more than 200 works, all of which came from the collections of the library. A number of woodblock prints were included, along with an explanation of how they were done. I found the exhibit very satisfying artistically, but the section called "The Structure of the Book" left me wanting more about how the books were created.
