Have you read a good book lately? I certainly hope so. But there are many additional ways to enjoy books as a personal pursuit beside reading them, belonging to a book club, rediscovering the old favorites you love as a child, and searching for that next irresistible volume in which to lose yourself. Book browsing is a medieval art. Every paper conservator should have three well-paved avenues for page turning adventures: proper bookstore stocked by bibliophiles, a choice second hunt, and a civilized lending library.
One of the gems I discovered the end of the February was Ingenious Impressions exhibition at the Hunterian Art Gallery at The University of Glasgow. The exhibition charts the development of the early printed book in Europe, exploring the transition from manuscript to print and its impact on late medieval society.
This is some of the my photographs were taken at the exhibition opening. All of these books are an art forms. All of them were given away as a free bonus from creations which are a wealth of inspiration and information. If you can please put finding a fabulous exhibition on your list personal priorities in March.
March arrives, slowly or spirits reawaken, along the nature world from a long winter’s slumber
Is the first mild day of March, each minute sweeter than before…….
……….and believe me is one more ways to enjoy books….. Exhibition!!!
