A detailed analysis and reconstruction of the unique scriptorium in the Slovenian monastery of Sticna (ancient Sitticum). Every item is catalogued and illustrated, mostly in colour. '... an invaluable survey of late Romanesque and early gothic scripts and book production, it is better than anything else on the twelfth-century book currently available. It will be invaluable for teaching... and is made the more so by the abundance of plates, produced to Harvey Miller's usual high standard. Anyone interested in the history of the book, whether medieval or modern, manuscript or printed, should read and if possible own a copy of this excellent book.' (The Book Collector)
