It is the first time when the “International Artist’s Book Triennial Vilnius” in the Exhibition will show not only artist’s books, but also rare books and manuscripts from the Martynas Mazvydas National Library of Lithuania.
Documentary Heritage Research Department, Rare Books and Manuscripts Unit in The National Library suggested for the Exhibition some very interesting rare books and manuscripts with poems, poetry, homilies and “tips on how to die decently”… We chose 12 rare books on theme “Memento Mori” for showing it together with the artist’s books in the “8th International Artist’s Book Triennial Vilnius 2018” in the National Library of Lithuania.
