Endless thanks to BibliOdyssey and Journey Around My Skull for trying to spread the word about Art Nerd on Twitter and Dana for commenting - trust me, you have no idea how much it means and you'll have a place in my heart until the end of times.

With my knowledge of Japanese being sadly close to nada, I'm not sure I got all the information about this Ex Libris exhibition at Vanilla Gallery in Tokyo right and I do believe that it actually closes today, i.e. has already closed by the time I post this, so please do correct me if certain details are wrong and the show is still running.

What I think I did gather is that works by Franz von Bayros (top) and Alphonse Inoue (bottom) are/were on show and that alone is epic enough to grab my attention.

    The exhibit at Vanilla Gallery was small but exquisite. Your excellently written blog is my number one source for art news. Thank you very much for your invaluable work! If you needed support with Japanese translations I would be glad to help you out. Best greetings.
