Event description

Description

Discover how sixteenth-century bookbindings were made, from the sewing to the decoration (tooling). This workshop highlights the work of local binder Garrett Godfrey (c. 1527-33) and offers a display of his finest bindings along with other fascinating Tudor bindings from the Queens' College Old Library's collections. Use a bookbinder's roll to understand the technique more fully.
