Jikji Early Printing Museum

Jikji Early Printing Museum is one of the UNESCO's Memory of the World Site.  The Museum contains the oldest book printing using movable metal types in July 1377. Priest Seokcan and Daldam helped the publication while female priest Myodeok offered a donation for the project. Jikji was printed in two volumes; the first volume has not been found yet and the second volume has been kept in the National library of France.

The images included were taken mostly in August 2006 during Dr. Ching-chih Chen's visit to the Museum.
