20th Century Japan in 20 Buildings

On June 22nd 2022 we held an event to celebrate the extraordinary book '20th Century Japan in 20 Buildings' by John Barr. He was in discussion with RIAS Award 2022 winner, Kieran Gaffney.



It was great to open our doors to customers, members and friends and welcome them into our beautiful building. The discussion prompted excellent questions and important conversations around the context of political, social, economic, historical and cultural factors that helped shape modern Japan.

 We have only a couple of copies signed by John - don't miss out!
‘20th Century Japan in 20 Buildings’ is available to purchase at the special price of £45 here 
Keep an eye on Twitter (@BookshopRIAS) and the website for further events.
