Subject: Technology of the Medieval Book VIII

Technology of the Medieval Book VIII

From: Jack C. Thompson <jct>
Date: Sunday, January 15, 1995
This year's workshop will occur between 10-21 July.

The reason for presenting this annual seminar on the technology of the
medieval book is to provide the participants with an opportunity to
experience and understand elements of those technologies which have been
central to the production and dissemination of knowledge in western
culture. Toward that end, in the first week the participants will learn
how flax and other fibers were harvested and processed to make thread,
cord, and paper.

During the second week, participants will learn to make parchment, alum
tawed leather, wooden boards, and fore edge clasps.
