Monday morning…

Filed under: Morning Musings — jackie @ 8:08 am

Good morning readers.

A bit of site business this morning. I have updated the book links and added a few new selections. All the books that are listed are in my personal library and I have added only titles that are still in print. In the future I will do a post on worthwhile books that are out of print. Alot of them can still be purchased through used book dealers and can be found over on the AbeBooks site. Also, please consider clicking on the links from this site to purchase books from Amazon. For every book you buy through the Amazon links from this site you get a great book for your library and I get a small bit of change which helps in the sites upkeep.

Yesterdays class went well. I had two students and both are members of the local SCA. One of them, Sandi, brought me a great little publication on Basic Bookbinding. Which focuses on Medieval bookbinding techniques. You can buy copies over on the main SCA site in the Marketplace. The SCA puts out a series of monographs called The Compleat Anachronist. “Each issue focuses on a topic relating to pre-17th century culture, society, or other items of interest to SCA members. Most issues not only discuss period examples, but how you can try it too!” I’ve been seeing alot of info lately about Medieval bookbinding which I guess is the universe hinting that I need to drag out the sewing frame and leather and get to work on making period style books.

I should have the updated Hedgehog directions on the site later this afternoon. I will also be posting directions for the Warthog, a hardbacked version of the Hedgehog, in the next week or so. :)

I’ll leave you today with a link to The Medieval Manuscript Manual. From the site “This manual was created in the course of various cultural heritage-projects at the Department of Medieval Studies at Central European University, Budapest. It should offer basic  information on the topic Medieval Manuscripts to be comprehended and utilized also by non-specialists in the field. It might be applied as general background knowledge, teaching module, and distance learning unit for the description of specific surviving objects of our European medieval cultural heritage, and for the composition of appropriate multi-media applications to serve a wider international public.”
