Scriptorium Archives

The ‘Scriptorium Archives‘ is a virtual installation which contains an archive of all the materials, tools, and paraphernalia used in the creation of the ‘Vita Thenogi’. This website acts as documentation of the processes involved in making the manuscript and as a space to share knowledge and skills.

Rifle through the drawers, browse the shelves, sit at the desk, open the jars and bottles and peer inside.

Below are some of the photographs featured in the archive, but please click the following link to enter the scriptorium and browse the archive in full.
