Movables in a Book Format
A Workshop with Emily Martin
Sunday, November 4, 2012
10 am to 5 pm
Library Company of Philadelphia
1314 Locust Street
The earliest movables date from the 13th century, developed by a Benedictine monk, Matthew Paris in Herefordshire, England. The form called a volvelle from the Latin verb volvere, meaning “to turn or roll around” was used to coordinate religious dates and even to predict the future. The form has endured to this day. In addition to volvelles, there are other versatile movables such as turning wheels, Victorian wheels, slides and dissolves. The class will make models of all the structures and there can be a discussion of the compensations needed to incorporate the elements into a book.
