From Parchment to Pixel: Conservation and Digitization of Illuminated Manuscripts - Zoom Lecture
Wed., Aug. 19, 2020 | 10 a.m.–11 a.m.
In 1567, William Bowyer, Keeper of the Records in the Tower of London, created a lavishly illuminated manuscript for Robert Dudley, Earl of Leicester. This manuscript has been among the most studied volumes since Henry Huntington acquired it in 1912. Our program follows this single manuscript as it travels from curator to conservator to digitization team, who all work together to transform a 16th-century manuscript into a 21st-century digital tool. This event is part of an ongoing webinar series presented by the Library's Reader Services Department.
