I forwarded the link to other scribal groups, thanks for posting.  :-)
Cheers, Hillary

Subject: [Scriptoris] Exhibit Opening in Austin f. Medieval Manuscripts

There's a fantastic exhibit of interest to scribes and illuminators opening
in Austin at the HRC (Harry Ransom Center) at the University of Texas. It's
called "The King James Bible: Its History and Influence" and will run from
28 February - 29 July. Admittance to the HRC is free, unless it's the
exhibit's opening night reception on 2 March. If you've never been, it's a
lovely space that tends to be quiet and not very crowded, so you'll have
ample time and space to examine things. They also have a Gutenberg Bible!

The exhibit is put together with help from Folger Shakespeare Library and
the Bodleian Library of the University of Oxford, and it is featuring a
number of the best bibles in these collections. It's a rare opportunity to
see real Medieval manuscripts and illumination up close and personal. The
HRC has one of the world's most excellent collections of rare books,
including a large number of ones that are of interest to us. I've been to
private exhibitions of some of their Medieval manuscripts when I was at
school there, and some of the things they have in the collection are truly
