6th cen. Codex C by jeannine24673, via Flickr

Early Coptic Codex. This book is sewn with a link stitch and has sewn endbands. The spine is covered with leather that laces into the wooden covers. Two long wrapping bands with bone closures are attached to the head and foredge. A large leather and vellum bookmark is attached to the back cover. This dramatic binding is based on the 4th century Glazier Codex in the collection of the Morgan Library in New York.

I love the shape of this. 9th – 10th century Borre style, following the form of a 6th century find from Sutton Hoo. Purchasable!
