Medieval Books

Screen Shot 2018-02-12 at 12.50.12 PMThere’s a super blog called Medieval Books written by Erik Kwakkel at the University of Leiden which has really interesting articles about obscure facets of medieval book-making, from the chains used to secure the books in libraries; to the advertising offered by bookmakers; to the how, why and where of fonts used; to the ways in which scribes fixed mistakes. It’s written for the public with wit and intelligence, and the comments sections tend to be interesting, too. Check it out!
