Talk:Parchment

From Wiki

Let's merge this page with the Parchment (PCC) page from PCC. (comment by Suzy Morgan 21 July 2014‎)

I'd argue for keeping it as a separate page, but with the more clearly defined purpose of describing parchment as a bookbinding material. Parchment as a substrate, and most of the physical and chemical description, would stay on the Parchment (PCC) page.--Kkelly (talk) 13:11, 1 May 2017 (CDT)

I would like to see definitions and photographs of: Dutch hollow back vellum bindings (as described in Pugliese, Sylvia. 2001. “Stiff-Board Vellum Binding with Slotted Spine: Survey of a Historical Bookbinding Structure.” Papier Restaurierung – Mitteilungen der IADA (2, Suppl. S.). 93-101.0). --Kkelly (talk) 13:05, 30 April 2018 (CDT)

I would like to see a discussion of the treatment of shrunken parchment bindings. This was discussed in the 2018 AIC Annual talk "Branded by Fire".--Kkelly (talk) 10:51, 27 June 2018 (CDT)
