BOOK HISTORY WORKSHOP
Lyon, 3 - 6 April 2006
__________________________

For the fifth edition of its Book History Workshop, organised in
collaboration with the Rare Book School, the Lyon-based Institut d'histoire
du livre is offering four advanced four-day courses in the fields of book
and printing history. 

Courses on offer this year are:

GOTHIC ILLUMINATED MANUSCRIPTS IN THE HISTORY OF THE BOOK
Tutor: Sandra Hindman (new course, in English)

TYPE, LETTERING AND CALLIGRAPHY: PART ONE 1450-1830
tutor: James Mosley (existing course, for the first time in English)

tutor: Neil Harris (course in French)

FRENCH GOLD-TOOLED BOOKBINDINGS 1507-1967 : MAJOR WORKSHOPS AND COLLECTORS
tutors: Isabelle de Conihout and Pascal Ract-Madoux (course in French)

The Book History Workshop is aimed at book and printing historians and at
the many other specialists who encounter questions related to book and
printing history in the course of their work: researchers, teachers,
archivists, librarians, museum curators, antiquarian booksellers,
collectors, designers, etc.

The courses offered by the Institut d'histoire du livre cover various
aspects of the history of the book and graphic communications. Subjects are
dealt with from both theoretical and practical points of view through
illustrated lectures, discussions and close study of original documents. In
addition to Lyons City Library and Museum of Printing which are the
principal source of original documents for study, the Bibliothèque Mazarine
(Paris) will also open its collections to students following the course on
French gold-tooled bindings.

The courses will take place in Lyon from the 3rd to the 6th April 2005.
Classes will be held at the Ecole normale supérieure - lettres et sciences
humaines (Lyon) with sessions at the Lyon City Library, the Printing Museum
(and the Bibliothèque Mazarine, Paris, in the case of the course on French
gold-tooled bindings).

Tuition fee: 450 euros (mid-day meals included).

In order to facilitate access to collections of original documents the
number of participants is limited to twelve per class.
