Please mark your calendars for this upcoming book talk and open house. Giovanni Scorcioni, founder of FacsimileFinder.com, is a bookseller and publishing consultant specializing in facsimile editions of medieval manuscripts. On display at the Open House will be recently-published works and examples of upcoming facsimiles.
In his talk, Giovanni will address the nature and definition of medieval manuscript facsimiles; the materials and techniques used in their production; how facsimiles themselves have changed in the last 50-100 years and their role in an increasingly digital environment; the underlying factors that affect which facsimiles are created and why; and much, much more about the world of facsimiles.
The Open House will take place from 10:00AM to 1:00PM, and Giovanni's talk will start at 11:00AM.
