At an exhibition under way at the Museum of Ancient Asian Woodblock Prints in Wonju, Gangwon, visitors can learn about the history of sijeonji, or the paper people of Joseon Dynasty (1392-1910) used to write letters or poems. Titled “Ancient Letter Paper with Woodblock Printing,” the exhibit runs until Nov. 20. About 170 papers from Korea and China are on display as well as 30 Chinese drawings that influenced the patterns and prints on the papers.
