April in Lyon, History of the Book (additional info.)


To the three classes being offered by Lyon's Institut d'Histoire du Livre on April 5-8, as reported here in November -- see fy031115.htm --

-- now has been added a fourth --

"Since the publication in 1951 of Louis-Marie Michon's La reliure française -- an excellent but sparsely illustrated study which is now, inevitably, rather out of date -- there has been no serious study of French bookbinding as a whole.

"Isabelle de Conihout and Pascal Ract-Madoux aim in their course to fill this gap by offering a close examination of a large number of remarkable bindings from the period 1507-1967. A hundred or so original bindings (and several hundred photographic reproductions) will be presented and described. Although bindings are physically inseparable from the content which they enclose, they also have to be considered as autonomous artefacts. French deluxe bindings in particular have to be considered as works of art as much as historical objects.

"Areas covered by the course include:

"The first three days of the course will finish with a presentation and discussion of a selection of Lyon City Library's most precious bookbindings. Participants will thus have an exceptional opportunity to discover at close quarters highly decorated bindings and discuss them with the tutors.

"The fourth and last day of the course will take place at the Bibliothèque Mazarine in Paris, and will be given over to an examination of this prestigious library's most precious bindings."


Detailed course outline

"The first three days are made up of four sessions: the first three sessions take place at the Ecole normale supérieure -- lettres et sciences humaines (ENS-LSH), the final session will take place at Lyon City Library.

General Information:


And, per remarks made in the previous, Lyon is a great place: particularly for anyone, French or foreign, who knows France simply as Paris plus the Côte d'Azur, having "visited Lyon" only en passant, racing through the autoroute routier tunnels of la Fourvière... So, visitez Lyon: the wine, the views of the Alps, the gastronomie, the history, the chocolate...
