    A really wonderful introductory text for anyone interested in bookbinding, illumination, or scripts, as well as different types of manuscripts and codices I bought this for a class and am glad to have purchased it because it will make a handy reference It s so short that I definitely recommend it as a starting point for anyone getting into the field It goes very well with Raymond Clemens book, Introduction to Manuscript Studies.
