Chantry New Book Tasters – Jasdip Singh Dhillon on “Fabriano”


Thanks to the support of Chantry Library users and well-wishers, we have purchased some new books with your kind donations. Over the next few weeks, we’ll give you a few ‘tasters’ of what is now on offer in the library. The first book is Fabriano; City of Medieval and Renaissance Papermaking by Sylvia Rodgers Albro (Washington, DC and New Castle, DE: Library of Congress and Oak Knoll Press, 2016). This extensively researched and richly illustrated book represents an important milestone in the study of European papermaking. Albro draws richly on archival evidence as well as historical paper samples to produce a book which would be of great benefit to curators, librarians, conservators and historians alike.
