LISANBY MUSEUM, FESTIVAL

Before books were printed, they were patiently copied by hand. Frequently written on expensive vellum pages and lavishly decorated, they were considered works of art. This exhibit features medieval manuscript leaves from JMU’s permanent collection, exploring the craft of bookmaking and illuminating the word itself.

Free admission. For further information, visit http://www.jmu.edu/forbescenter/events/2016/10/31-illuminating-the-word.shtml
