Japanese Ex-libris Stamps
Topic: Art
Japanese Ex-libris Stamps -- "Ex-libris ownership stamps were imprinted in books to clearly indicate to which collection these literary works belonged. They were first seen in China from where they were brought to Japan. While we can trace Japan's oldest ex-libris ownership stamps back to the Nara period (710 to 794), we cannot pinpoint when nor how they were introduced to Japan." (via the cartoonist April 2005)
