A place has become available for the second week of the Ligatus Summer School in Lisbon.
The theme of the second week course is ‘European Bookbinding, 1450 – 1830’, taught by Professor Nicholas Pickwoad.
The School will be hosted by the New University of Lisbon (NOVA), in association with the University of the Arts London (UAL), the National Library of Portugal and the Torre do Tombo National Archive.
The School is world-renowned amongst librarians, cataloguers, conservators, book historians, book collectors and scholars who work with early books. Participants explore the development of historic bindings, with a particular emphasis on description and recording of structures and materials. The knowledge gained through the School supports academic research, collection management, and conservation decision-making across the world.
The place will be allocated to a suitable applicant on a first-come, first-served basis, so swift application is highly recommended!
