The Ohio Preservation Council, with support from the State Library of Ohio is pleased to announce “The Codex: History, Art, and Practice.”  This is a full day symposium in celebration of the Codex, highlighting the history and art of bookbinding with panel discussions, concurrent talks, and hands-on learning.

Julia Miller is the keynote speaker and will address the urgency of historical book description and why conservation and preservation is everyone’s responsibility.   She is a bench trained conservator and author of Books Will Speak Plain: A handbook for Identifying and Describing Historical Bindings.  She studies and teaches historical book binding structures.

Following the keynote panelists James Reid-Cunningham, Bonnie Mak and Macy Chadwick will discuss the idea of a post-codex period in our current era.  Break-out sessions will occur after lunch.

Participants will leave with a greater knowledge and appreciation of the codex in a number of creative and historic applications.
