We were very lucky to host a weeklong workshop with Julia Miller this past week, The Early History of the Codex. Students worked on four different historical models: a papyrus roll with leather enclosure, a multi-board wax tablet codex using cedar and encaustic wax, a nag hammadi codex, and a multi-quire codex based on the Glazier codex. What made this class especially enjoyable was Julia's depth of knowledge, and her ability to bring broad historical knowledge of the period and the forms to her students. Hands-on work was complemented by reading material and slide lectures, as well as Julia's extensive trove of teaching models.
