Dr Cynthia Johnston leads this introduction to the medieval illuminated book. Using examples from the beautiful manuscripts in the R.E. Hart Collection, she will describe the world of the medieval reader. What sorts of books did medieval readers want and how did they obtain them? How were the books made and by whom? What was the medieval ‘best seller’? The day will conclude with the opportunity for participants to have direct experience with these medieval treasures in Blackburn Museum’s Level 2.
