This 16th Century Book Can Be Read Six Different Ways Sure, the Amazon Kindle might have dynamic font adjustments, and it can hold thousands of books, but can it do this? Printed in the late 16th century this small book from the National Library of Sweden is an example of sixfold dos-à-dos binding, where six books are conjoined into a single publication but can be read individually with the help of six perfectly placed clasps. This particular book was printed in Germany and like almost all books at the time is a religious devotional text. The National Library of Sweden has a fantastic photo collection of historical and rare books where you can find many more gems like this, and this, and this. Update: And if you really like amazing old book discoveries, you should be following Erik Kwakkel, the Medieval book historian at Leiden University in the Netherlands, who originally unearthed this story.

Mandala Journal Tutorial - finally!! I have finally completed my tutorial for the making of my Mandala Journal. I tried to keep it to three parts, but, well... you can skip certain parts if you aren't wanting to experience things like paper maché! I think I'll let the videos do the teaching, and wait for questions to come in - then, as they do, I will update this post and address them rather than try to guess at what I've left out - because I'm sure I've left some stuff out!! Part I goes over applying joint compound, or wall spackle, to your book board covers. Part II is the finishing of the spackle. Part III is the creation of the interior board pages, which are paper maché. Part IV, the final video is the actual binding process. Hopefully the hand out will help with the binding details - help yourself by printing them out. Click on image for full view and to print. For personal use only, please.

The Birds of America The Birds of America is a book by naturalist and painter John James Audubon, containing illustrations of a wide variety of birds of the United States. It was first published as a series in sections between 1827 and 1838, in Edinburgh and London. The work consists of hand-coloured, life-size prints, made from engraved plates, measuring around 39 by 26 inches (99 by 66 cm). It includes images of six now-extinct birds: Carolina parakeet, passenger pigeon, Labrador duck, great auk, Esquimaux curlew, and pinnated grouse.[2] Early publication history[edit] About 1820, around the age of 35, Audubon declared his intention to paint every bird in North America.[3] In his bird art, he mainly forsook oil paint, the medium of serious artists of the day, in favour of watercolours and pastel crayons (and occasionally pencil, charcoal, chalk, gouache, and pen and ink).[4] As early as 1807, he developed a method of using wires and threads to hold dead birds in lifelike poses while he drew them.[3]

reino artesanal Media - Hoe onderzoek je een boek zonder het te lezen? Erik Kwakkel is geen alledaagse wetenschapper. Als een echte Sherlock Holmes bestudeert hij middeleeuwse boeken van top tot teen, behalve... door ze te lezen. En toch komt de historicus via zijn methode enorm veel over die boeken te weten. Eveneens is Kwakkel een wetenschapper die actief blogt en tweets in de wereld rondstuurt. Wat zijn onderzoek allemaal aan het licht brengt en wat de voordelen van een 'sociale wetenschapper' zijn komt Kwakkel (Universiteit Leiden) in onze studio uitleggen.

Mandragore base des manuscrits enluminés Histoire du livre Un article de Wikipédia, l'encyclopédie libre. Entre le VIe et le XVIIIe siècle, la production européenne de livres a été multipliée par un facteur de plus de 70 000[1].

Origines[modifier | modifier le code] Premiers supports[modifier | modifier le code] L'écriture est la condition de l'existence du texte et du livre. Mais le livre est également lié à son support, à la volonté humaine de donner une matérialité durable à un texte. On trouve ensuite des tablettes d'argile utilisées en Mésopotamie au IIIe millénaire av. Le papyrus[modifier | modifier le code] Production[modifier | modifier le code] Après avoir extrait la moelle des tiges, une suite d'opérations (humidification, pressage, séchage, collage, découpage) permettait d'obtenir des supports de qualité variable, les meilleurs étant utilisés pour les écritures sacrées.

Moleskine Reloaded : Sketching and Sketchbooks Table of Contents I. Introduction The size and durability of the Moleskine Pocket notebook is perfect for my sketching needs, but the paper is not ideal. These instructions describe exactly how I do this process, but one can of course vary the project extensively to suit other notebook sizes, papers, or covers.

Withstand - Production, video, film Inspired by techniques that date back to the origins of film, this book pays homage to the intimate relation between image and movement. Virgilio Villoresi’s idea for the book was to animate Virginia Mori’s illustrations using a pre-cinema technique. “Vento” is the outcome of a dialogue between both artists’ imaginations. This project is the first of a series of animated, interactive books whose pages will unfold through time, giving the reader the possibility to construct and deconstruct the plot. As each image unveils its own story, the reader is free to imagine what connections may or may not exist between them. Virgilio Villoresi was born November 10, 1979 in Fiesole (Florence,Italy). He learned alchemical synthesis from Harry Smith, structural ontology from Jonas Mekas, how to make art of garbage from Jack Smith, ritual magic from Kenneth Anger. Virginia Mori was born in Cattolica in 1981. Order your copy of "Vento" now.
