Imagination, books & community in medieval Europe

Hardback 256pp Illustrated ISBN 9781921394331

This lavishly illustrated publication of papers by 17 scholars, including extensive illustrated essays by Jeffrey Hamburger and Margaret Manion, presents a rich range of studies on the medieval book. This new publication elaborates on the successful The medieval imagination exhibition held at the State Library of Victoria in 2008, with papers drawn from a conference held at the Library between 28 March and 15 June 2008. It includes full-colour images of many of the works from Australian and New Zealand collections that were featured in the exhibition, as well as many images of medieval manuscripts from other collections around the world.
