Open Book Publishers celebrates title 150
|Source: Rudy, 2019, p.82|
Image, Knife, and Gluepot traces the story of the capture and virtual reconstruction of a Netherlandish book of hours or prayer book made in 1500 from data and images assembled from digitised collections across the world.
Kathryn not only describes her methodology and shows how these creative works were assembled, but helps the reader understand the human story of the research process – her experiences good and bad, and the financial and other constraints that academics work within constantly that profoundly shape their research.
