Reading Craft: Understanding History Through Reproduction

Presented by Boston Athenæum at Boston Athenæum, Boston MA

Dec 16 2019
Reading Craft: Understanding History Through Reproduction

How does the process of reproducing an object serve as a form of research, lending insight into past practices, tools, materials—and even the object’s social functions?

with Brent Budsberg, Ellen Kaspern, and Jeff Altepeter, moderated by Miguel Gómez-Ibáñez

Panelists from Current Projects and North Bennet Street School—representing the worlds of traditional woodworking and craft bookbinding—explore the significance of their work for the Required Reading exhibition: a full-scale replica of a unique Colonial Revival bookcase; a faithful copy of a seventeenth-century “bookpress;” and leather-bound books emulating those in the historic King’s Chapel
