My research developed in collaboration with the Heritage section of the Maurits Sabbe Bibliotheek at the Catholic University of Leuven (Theology Faculty) in Belgium. I studied the sewing threads and sewing structures of twenty-four manuscripts and printed books from Western Europe, ranging from the 12th to the early 19th century, by means of two methods: visual assessments and Reflectance Transformation Imaging (RTI) with a Microdome, a digitisation tool created by the Catholic University of Leuven.
