What did a book look like in ancient Rome? How did our ancestors read, hold and protect their books? How did medieval monks construct the bindings of their manuscripts? These and many other questions will be answered by visiting our exhibit of models recreating ancient and medieval bookbindings. Bequeathed by scholar conservator Julia Miller, this extraordinary teaching collection of bookbinding models includes replicas of Graeco-Roman tablets, early Coptic books, as well as medieval European, Near Eastern, and Islamic bindings spanning from the 12th to the 17th century.
