A New Medieval Book Blog

Via This is Colossal, the news that medievalist and book historian Erik Kwakkel has a new blog, medievalbooks, showcasing many of the unusual manuscripts he’s examined and what they tell us about the creation and use of medieval texts. So far, that includes medieval “selfies,” octopi serving as marginal notes, and bookmarks that mark not just a page, but a column and a line too. It looks like it’s going to be a fascinating read.
