New Book

New Book featuring Heroic Age editors in the mix:
Signs on the Edge. Space, Text and Margin in Medieval Manuscripts, ed.
Sarah Larratt Keefer and Rolf H. Bremmer Jr. Mediaevalia Goningana n.s. 10
(Paris, Louvain and Dudley, MA: Peeters, 2007).

Medieval cultures to the north and west of the Alps gained their initial
understanding of visual spatialization from the Ancient world, but
developed their own ways of managing primary and secondary space on any
surface where text and/or art interact. The eleven essays of this volume
span the period from early insular manuscripts through to later medieval
books or artefacts, and examine specific strategies in scribal layout or
prescribed authorial design. These vary in their sophistication from the
naïve and inadvertent to the self-conscious and at times parodic
intentional, allowing us a fascinating insight into the many different
ways in which main and marginal space on the page could be employed by
medieval imaginations.

In addition to the editors, contributors include Jill Frederick, Ann
Dooley, William Schipper, Catherine E. Karkov, Phillip Pulsiano†, Karen L.
Jolly, Joanne Findon, Gale R. Owen-Crocker, Erik Kwakkel and Michael

The book is dedicated to Phil Pulsiano.
