A face peeping through golden foliage, an inscription to a loved one, an inky fingerprint: marginalia takes many forms. Marks made by individuals in their books are of increasing interest in our digital world; they represent material connections with the past. Join Anna to explore examples of curious marginalia from the SLV's rich collection of medieval and early modern books.
