I went to the British Library last summer and they had started doing this
there at the time.  They had several kiosks set up and you could peruse
about a half a dozen texts.  The recreation is very detailed and some of the
illumination in the texts is gorgeous.  The group I was with did not resort
to using a crowbar on me to pry me loose of it but it was discussed.

Sure, I don't go to events much anymore, but I come across links that
people might like to see...

This might make a scribe cry... it's so cool.

The British Library is taking rare books and digitizing them and
offering them online. I saw something about this early on last year,
but it looks like they're getting the program up and going... the
Turning the Pages program... Make sure you've got your Shockwave
player installed...
