The first article of the journal Cadernos do Arquivo Municipal‘s 20th issue is now available, with the thematic dossier ‘The Book in Its Time: Places, Materials, Forms and Techniques’. The rest will be made available in continuous publication from July 2023.
The Book is a phenomenon that combines the fascination of its manifestations of yesteryear to the current debates and practices that announce future paths and dilemmas. We propose in this issue an exercise that recovers the procedures and techniques that gained body to welcome another invention, that of writing, which inscribes the history of copyists, printing typographers who moved between cities and countries in search of business, that of their emergence in monasteries, courts, universities, binder workshops and typographies, that of street vendors and that of the production and marketing circuits.
The scientific coordination of this issue is in charge of Fernando J. Bouza Álvarez (Universidad Complutense de Madrid), João Luís Lisboa (CHAM – NOVA FCSH) and Luís Martins (IELT – NOVA FCSH). More information here aqui.
