The exhibition Book Art in Croatia - prepared by the Croatian national library, marks the European Year of Cultural Heritage. Its aim is to present and promote the Croatian cultural heritage. The exhibition provides a historical overview of producing and get-up of the book in Croatia from the middle ages until today. Handwritten and printed books with a variety of topics and content are presented - from medieval evangeliaries and missals to contemporary illustrated editions and graphic-literary maps. By their design or harmonization of visual and graphic equipment with content, they place among outstanding achievements of the artistic design of books in Croatia.

A selection of sixty units of material are displayed, also the original Beram Missal (14/15th century) and other facsimiles. The accompanying publication to the exhibition has the introductory essay and the catalogue with a short description of the material.

The jointly organized exhibition strengthens the long-term cooperation between the two libraries.
