Rub, stroke, chew, wear, sniff – Sensational Books explores our experiences of the book beyond reading.

Structured around six senses of sight, sound, taste, smell, touch and proprioception – the sense of self-movement and body-perception – this exhibition will unlock a world of sensory engagement with books. Edmund de Waal's artist book Breath will be installed in the show from 21 June 2022.
