Los veintiocho ensayos de esta colección muestran investigaciones de vanguardia en estudios sobre manuscritos, que abarcan material desde la antigüedad tardía hasta el Renacimiento. El volumen celebra la contribución excepcional de John Lowden al estudio de los libros medievales. Los autores y autoras exploran algunos de los temas y preguntas planteados en el trabajo de Lowden, abordando cuestiones de significado, creación, promoción, el libro como un objeto, relaciones entre texto e imagen y la transmisión de ideas. Combinan el compromiso de Lowden con el escrutinio minucioso de los manuscritos con una interrogación sobre lo que significaron los libros en su propio tiempo y lo que significan para nosotros ahora.
