New IFLA Publication: The History and Cultural Heritage of Chinese Calligraphy, Printing, and Library Work

The History and Cultural Heritage of Chinese Calligraphy, Printing, and Library Work In China the tradition of a book society is longer than anywhere else in
the world. Chinese paper making, calligraphy and woodblock printing
date from very early ages, but have for a very long time remained almost
unknown to the Western world. At the 2006 IFLA satellite meeting Chinese
Written and Printed Cultural Heritage and Library Work in Hangzhou
, the richness of present day book historical research and library
activities in China has been presented by more than sixty papers. This
fine selection reflects the width and depth of this extremely important
and immense Chinese heritage. The Editors are Chinese and international
experts on book history.
