History and the Humanities
Join us at the Lilly Library as we explore the world of the medieval book and the techniques and tools employed by medieval scribes, illuminators, and painters who created these works of art. You will also gain hands-on experience as you practice such things as basic gold leafing and writing with quill pens.
