Expertise: bookbinding, history

About: I am interested in the role that a better understanding of the history of bookbinding can bring to the study of the history of the book and material culture in general. This study must include the plain and simple bindings in which most books were read and not just the tiny proportion of heavily decorated books on which most studies of the history of bookbinding have traditionally concentrated. The study and recording of the materials and structures of bindings are therefore central to this work.

Languages spoken (other than English): French, some German, some Italian
