The Gift of a Girdle Book…
This exceptional gift arrived to celebrate the launch of the second book in The Gisborne Saga.
It’s a delicate miniature copy of a medieval girdle book, created and bound by renowned miniature book artist, Patricia Sweet, from Bopress Studios
Girdle books were ‘small portable books worn by monks, the clergy and nobles as a popular accessory between the 13th and 16th centuries.’ For quite a good detailed description, go to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Girdle_book
There are so few original girdle books left in the world that I figure I am immensely spoiled and very very lucky.
