Every book tells a story

The State Library of Victoria has an excellent collection of medieval and Renaissance illuminated manuscripts. Shane Carmody, the Library's Director of Collections and Access, provides background to the Library's acquisition of some of these beautiful treasures.

This lecture was held on 12 June 2008 at the State Library of Victoria, in association with the exhibition The medieval imagination.
