Following the lead of sister site Teaching the Codex, the Teaching the Book site reaches out for examples you have found that demonstrate particular features of books in the age of the hand-press. Formats can include a short text with image, a film, or a gallery of Multiples.
Contributions are welcome, on all aspects of discovering material, preparing for sessions, or the experience of teaching with early books at any level. Please note the essential guide below:
- Text should be 300-400 words
- Images must be sent as jpegs and under 1 MB.
- Films must be available to all, to be embedded in a blogpost.
- References to specific editions must be clearly identified; where possible please provide a link to an online catalogue. See this link as an example: http://solo.bodleian.ox.ac.uk/permalink/f/89vilt/oxfaleph015592789
- References to specific copies must be clearly identified with a library shelfmark (call number)
