Manuscript Journeys

The idea of this blog is to create a metaphoric journey that, through manuscripts, will take us to different centuries, cultures, places and themes.

This blog is curated by Rromir Imami - Digital Communication professional for Cultural Heritage with passion to bring manuscript culture closer to wider audiences.
