    Siamese twins

    The bookbindings above are as odd as they are rare. In fact, I encountered my first only a few days ago while browsing Folger Library’s image database of bookbindings. The binding is called “dos-à-dos” (back to back), a type almost exclusively produced in the 16th and 17th centuries. They are like Siamese twins in that they present two different entities joint at their backs: each part has one board for itself, while a third is shared between the two. Their contents show why this was done: you will often find two complementary devotional works in them, such as a prayerbook and a Psalter, or the Bible’s Old and New Testament. Reading the one text you can flip the “book” to consult the other. The last image above is a unification of no less than seven devotional works printed by the same printer (Feichtinger, Lintz, 1736-1737), showing that the constructions could also encompass much more than just two texts. In the 20th century this type of binding enjoyed a revival with the Double Ace books, which featured two short science fiction stories.

J. M. Feichtinger, Lintz, 1736-1737 (from this sales catalogue). Other examples from the Folger here. A nice one auctioned off at Christie’s here.

    Whoa, neat.

    Is it ethical for commercial enterprises to fund residency programs for writers? Vauhini Vara speaks with one freelance writer about her Amtrak-sponsored trip: http://nyr.kr/1fnJnZ5

    “The life of a writer can be difficult and unstable. Paychecks for freelance gigs arrive infrequently, if at all. … Some people have argued persuasively that this sort of thing is a positive development. Isn’t this a better use of corporate funds than many others? Doesn’t it bring a much-needed source of new funding to the art world?”
