VIRTUAL RECONSTRUCTION OF BOOK COLLECTIONS
Educated Reader exhibition at Kynžvart Chateau
On the seventh of August, an opening took place for the Educated Reader exhibition, which was produced as part of the NAKI project “Virtual Reconstruction of Scattered Book Collections”. The exhibition can be seen from 8 August–10 October at Kynžvart Chateau. The show presents educated readers of the last five centuries through several dozen books in which they left their records, notes and sketches. The margin notes and marks on the pages of the book represent a biography and a passport, in which the stamps, signatures and notes delineate stages of its life and the route of the travels the book undertook.
