Designing English: Graphics on the Medieval Page

Friday 01 December 2017Sunday 22 April 2018

Exhibition focusing on graphic design of handwritten manuscripts and inscriptions from the medieval period and middle ages. Items from the Bodleian Library's holdings of medieval manuscripts in English include Old English picture books, notes scratched into herbals, fragments of medieval songs and masterpieces framed with illustrations and gold. The exhibition shows the experience of both the makers and the users of writing: how craftspeople planned and made books, and how readers responded to the designs.
