Description Beautiful Bookbindings de P. J. M. Marks:

Over 100 of the most beautiful bookbindings from the last 1000 years are showcased in this highly illustrated book that provides a world view of the development of the bookbinding craft. Arranged chronologically, these beautiful and often surprising works of art present a clear visual record of the progression of the craft through the ages. By juxtaposing bindings from different countries from the same period, differences and similarities, and the transfer of styles and ideas, are highlighted. Philippa Marks is Curator of Western Bookbindings at The British Library. She has written two other books, both published by the British Library: Treasures in Focus: Decorated Papers (2007) and The British Library Guide to Bookbinding (1998).
