A gorgeous collection of work from one of BC’s finest master printshops is on display for the next three weeks at UBC Library.

Through the Barbarian Eye: An exhibition of works from Barbarian Press features an array of material from this Mission, BC-based master printer – including early correspondence, stunning samples of works produced throughout the decades and a pre-publication copy of The Play of Pericles, one of Shakespeare’s lesser-known plays.

Barbarian Press was founded in 1977 by husband and wife Crispin and Jan Elsted. The press enjoys a stellar reputation among collectors, and is renowned worldwide for its exceptional work in printing wood engravings.

Through the Barbarian Eye runs from November 1-22 at UBC Library’s Rare Books and Special Collections, located on the lower level of the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre (1961 East Mall on the UBC Vancouver campus).
