Publications on the Way
For example, we prepare the next Version of our copyright multilingual digital font Bembino. You see this font in action on this website. Our publications in print now regularly employ it; many are available for download on Pages and Posts on this website. The font is available for FREE. You can download it and find instructions for installing it, as well as a downloadable Booklet (with description and specimens) here.
New Promotional Offer: The Illustrated Catalogue
Insular, Anglo-Saxon, and Early Anglo-Norman Manuscript Art at Corpus Christi College, Cambridge
(2 volumes with Text & Plates)
Press Release. A new development emerges for our largest co-publication to date in print. This is the Insular, Anglo-Saxon, and Early Anglo-Norman Manuscript Art at Corpus Christi College, Cambridge in 2 volumes (Text + Illustrations).
In February 2016, with the transfer of its distribution by Medieval Institute Publications to the Research Group on Manuscript Evidence, we can invite you to select your very own copy through the special Promotional Offer. As our organization does not face so many overheads as a larger publisher might have to consider, we can offer the 2-volume set at a more attractive price, to bring these amply illustrated volumes within reach of more scholars and students.
The text offers reports of many research discoveries for a broad, but integrated group of early medieval manuscripts in a major collection, while undergoing conservation work which resembled archaeological excavations — which our research recorded. This publication represents a monumental contribution to manuscript studies. The new Promotion offers a generous opportunity to discover its contributions first hand. Worth a look!
