Special Collections acquires Edo Period woodblocks

Visiting Assistant Professor Kevin Mulholland has worked with Special Collections librarian Max Yela to acquire a collection of woodblocks used to print an important Edo Period text. This acquisition will serve as an important addition to Special Collection’s interests in the history of the book. It will also allow Professor Mulholland to collect a data set with his research on woodblocks and authorship with the use of UWM’s electron microscope.
