“Our past bound in books”: NSK marking European Heritage Days 2022

Objavljeno 20.9.2022.

On 22 September 2022, starting at 14.00, the National and University Library in Zagreb (NSK) will host the opening of Our past bound in books, a special exhibition organised by the Library’s Preservation and Storage Department to mark European Heritage Days 2022, themed Sustainable Heritage.

The exhibition, authored by the Head of the Department’s Book Preservation and Binding Division Gabriela Aleksić, who prepared it in collaboration with her colleagues at the Division and a young and innovative researcher from the Department of Computer Graphics and Multimedia Systems of the Zagreb Faculty of Graphic Arts Dr Vladimir Cviljušac, will feature some of the most impressive books in the Library’s collections, displaying them both in cabinets and as printed computer-generated hologram posters, which Dr Cviljušac developed as part of his doctoral research.

The exhibition, which the visitors will be able to see on 22 and 23 September in the Library’s side lobby, will be held with the support of a Zagreb-based agency specialising in the manufacture of documents and high-security print products Agencija za komercijalnu djelatnost (AKD).
