At Château de Beloeil, organized by ARA Belgica

At the invitation of H.R.H. the Prince of Ligne, ARA Belgica has the honor of organizing the exhibition of contemporary bookbindings with the theme proposed by the Prince, ‘Eternal Egypt.’

The showcases will be displayed in the magnificent setting of the Ligne family library, which houses over 20,000 books and precious manuscripts, some of which are extremely rare, such as the “Liber passionis” with the arms of Henry VII of England. A portrait of Albert-Henri, the second Prince of Ligne (1609-1641), serves as a reminder that this scholar created this unique collection.

The selection of books presented will be eclectic, covering ancient Egypt and its Egyptologists, Egyptian literature, legends, and more.
