Éloge de la rareté

Cent trésors de la Réserve des livres rares

Sous la direction de Jean-Marc Chatelain

© CESR, Tours - BVH

Monuments des arts du livre du XVe au XXIe siècle, mais aussi témoins fragiles du temps qui passe, œuvres majeures de la culture populaire tout autant que de la culture savante, ces livres et documents témoignent de l’extraordinaire diversité des fonds imprimés les plus précieux de la Bibliothèque nationale de France, et de la pertinence que la notion de rareté conserve pour le patrimoine de notre temps.
 
Cet ouvrage est publié à l’occasion de l’exposition « Éloge de la rareté. Cent trésors de la Réserve des livres rares » organisée par la Bibliothèque nationale de France et présentée sur le site François-Mitterrand, Galerie 2, du 25 novembre 2014 au 1er février 2015.

Tutor: Professor N. Pickwoad

Week 2, Identifying and recording bookbinding structures of the eastern Mediterranean

Tutors: Dr. G. Boudalis and Dr. A. Velios
This course is divided into two interconnected sessions.
Dr. Georgios Boudalis, will focus on the major structural and decorative features of the different bookbinding traditions which have developed in the eastern Mediterranean –including the Coptic, Syriac, Armenian, Georgian and Islamic – with special focus on the Byzantine and post-Byzantine bookbindings.

The other part of the course will be taught by Dr. Athanasios Velios and will deal with the methodologies and techniques that can be used to record bookbindings.

Week 3, Byzantine bookbinding: a practical workshop

Tutor: Dr. G. Boudalis
The aim of this five-day workshop is to produce a model book bound according to typical Byzantine techniques, starting from the sewing of the gatherings and ending with the fastenings and decoration of the cover.

This year’s Ligatus Summer School will take place in the beautiful city of Ljubljana in Slovenia, and will be hosted by the Archives of the Republic of Slovenia.

The price is £300 per week per participant, and this includes fees for teaching only. Travel, food and accommodation would need to be arranged individually by each student.
