This week we hosted a workshop called Understanding the Book Structure and Binding of Islamic Manuscripts: Model Making and Conservation Issues from October 16th to 19th, 2018. The instructor is Dr. Karin Scheper, conservation specialist from Liden University Libraries, Netherlands. There are 9 participants attending the workshop, all of whom are conservators. Please note this is the first ever Islamic bookbinding workshop that is specifically meant for conservators and that is based on extensive research by a conservator herself, that has happened in North America and AKM is hosting it! Which is awesome!
