For My Bookbinding Friends…

Back in 2010, during my visit to the Museu d’Art de Catalunya, in Barcelona, I took a large number of pictures which I never managed to post anywhere. I have the best intentions of rectifying that.  For starters,  here is a series of pics of a polychrome wood carved statue of a saint, c. 1300, by an anonymous artist, from the workshop of San Bertran de Comenge.

It is not only a beautiful sample of period art, but it has a beautiful depiction of a girdle book.  Hopefully, those of you who are into bookbinding will find this extra useful.
