Medieval Bestiary | 2013 | $1200
Medieval binding: deerskin, cedar, brass, inkjet prints.
5 x 3.5 x 2”
This small structure model has many features typical of an early Medieval binding: text block sewn on double raised supports: shaped wood boards with special attention given to the inside spine edge to match the text block’s natural shoulder, then laced on and pegged; sewn headbands; covered in vividly-colored leather; strap and pin closure; simple bosses at the corners. Vellum page markers in each signature mark the placement of reproductions of creatures taken from illuminated manuscripts in The British Library.
