Duration: 1:01:35 | Added: 11 Nov 2021
The first talk in the Textiles in Libraries: Context and Conservation series brings together three colleagues from across the Bodleian Library to explore the wide variety and sometimes surprising uses of textiles found in our collections.

The session will look at examples of textiles and related techniques used to produce books, including traces of some that are now lost, and will begin to investigate the questions they pose both for our readers and for the library staff who care for them.

Speakers: Jo Maddocks, Assistant Curator of Printed Books; Andrew Honey, Book Conservator; and Martin Kauffmann, Head of Early and Rare Collections (all part of the Special Collections Department of the Bodleian Libraries)
