I swear when ever I get some money I am going to buy a copy of this.

This is one of the few books on bookbinding that I need but do not own I make do with the library copy which is great most of the time but I needed to check a reference and it was out on loan. At the exhibition of bookbinding at Palace Green Library in Durham there is a model of the binding of a codex from seventh century.

It’s the most intriguing and exciting thing in bookbinding I have ever seen. It looks like a prop from the film the ‘the fifth element’
I would like to think I could have the ability to work at the skills needed to make a ‘book’ like this but I recognise that it’s a long haul.
