Semi limp vellum bind

8/17

I worked with Scott Devine to complete this model of a semi-limp vellum bound book in NYAM’s collection.

We chose to create this book model because of the extensive research done on semi-limp parchment bindings in the NYAM library. A blog post about the collection can be found here, and the article about the collection can be found in Suave Mechanicals: Essays on the History of Bookbinding (Julia Miller, ed.) 3, 3-61. “A Study of Two Semi-Limp Parchment Binding Styles in the Rare Book Collection at The New York Academy of Medicine Library,” by Erin Albritton and Christina Amato.
