Historical Constraints: Examining the Girdle Book

Historical Constraints: Examining the Girdle Book

On their journeys, medieval religious travelers often carried a personal text which could be attached to a belt or girdle. The defining features of a girdle book include wooden boards covered with soft deerskin, a sewn binding on double cords, an extended skirt terminating in a decorative knot or hook for attachment, and a clasp closure. In this workshop, the instructor discusses historical models and participants construct a small girdle book.
