Name That Enclosure!

Preservation Underground - Fri, 2016-04-22 19:45

There are many different options for protective enclosures or wrappers for books and you can find a variety of examples in a typical research library collection. Occasionally I will find something that I have never seen before and this week I encountered a 15th century binding with a very simple, but novel form of book wrapper. I am not quite sure what to call it.

Wrapper01

The wrapper is constructed of thin card (similar to 10 pt Bristol board) and fits snugly over the fore-edge. The wrapper is held together by cut tabs, which are folded over the board edge and glued down.

Wrapper02

It slips on and off the book fairly easily and offers some protection to the exposed wooden boards and fore-edge clasps. It’s certainly a very quick and economical option, but has it’s own problems.

Wrapper03

Rachel Penniman has suggested calling this a “book bikini”, which I think has a nice ring to it. I’d be interested to know if a more established name exists, though. Regardless, I believe that this particular book deserves some more protection, so I will be replacing the wrapper with a full enclosure.

Are you curious about digital humanities but don’t know where to begin your explorations? Were you inspired by the Conversations in the Digital Humanities showcase event last Fall and thinking about plans for next year?  Do you have a project in mind but would like advice from experts on campus? Want to meet and greet other people interested in DH at Duke?
 
This presentation/discussion event will feature staff and faculty from across campus, who will share several sample projects, and outline campus resources, in some common digital humanities areas:
– text analysis for close and distant reading
– digital mapping of historic sites and itineraries
– 3D models of buildings and objects for historical reconstructions, museum exhibitions, and virtual reality
– networks of people, influences, markets
– digital archives and presentations of hidden collections, under-represented traditions, and new resources
