Dr. Kathryn Selig Brown will introduce Tibetan Buddhist book covers, works of handheld relief sculpture that are commonly decorated on all sides and glittering with gold. Arguably the most ornate in Asia, they have remained hidden in plain sight, until now. She will discuss the meaning of their decoration and set them in context using rare inscriptions that provide a wealth of information, including one of the few dates ever found on a book cover.

Kathryn Selig Brown, Ph.D. is an Independent Curator and Asian Art consultant. A former Curator at the Rubin Museum of Art in New York, she has curated more than a dozen exhibitions, written numerous articles and exhibition catalogues, and lectured widely including at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and the Art Institute in Chicago.
