Dedicated to the 500th anniversary of Armenian printing, the 20th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between the Republic of Armenia and the United Kingdom of Great Britain, and the designation of Yerevan as the 2012-2013 World Book Capital.

Armenpress reports, as per the official website of the British Library, that a number of magnificent manuscripts and rare specimens of the earliest Armenian printed books are being exhibited.

Printing in Armenian began in 1512 in Venice first, then spreading to European cities, the Near and Middle East, and India in the centuries that followed. Printing itself was introduced in Armenia in 1771.
