Digital photography often cannot adequately represent folded and rolled manuscripts, which depart from the norm of the codex, largely for two reasons: such manuscripts do not fit on a computer screen without spilling over; and manipulating them is often integral to their meaning-making. This video explores some approaches to making different kinds of digital objects in order to overcome these limitations. It showcases two fifteenth-century calendars made in the same workshop: a roll now in The Hague, and a booklet comprising quadripartite folding sheets now in Ljubljana. Video can show the manipulability, scale, sound, and function of these objects. These features can in turn illuminate the makers’ decision to use quite different kinds of parchment for the two projects.
