“A number of facsimile pages of [the Sanli tu] are on view at Bard Graduate Center, where a small but illuminating exhibition curated by François Louis explores the book’s significance and legacy. To bring its pages to life, Design by the Book also pairs spreads with real-life versions of the illustrated objects. Nie’s illustrations of stone chimes (bianqing), for instance, are accompanied by one early-18th-century stone chime that resembles the L-shaped drawing and a heavy bronze bell from the early 12th century.” — Claire Voon, Staff Writer for Hyperallergic.
