Join curator Catherine Yvard inside the National Art Library as she introduces us to a medieval choirbook from the 15th century. This particular object is an illuminated manuscript - a handwritten book which has been illustrated in gold, silver and rich colours that make the page shimmer.
Sound designer and performance-maker Julie Rose Bower has documented Catherine's delicate examination process using ambisonic sound, letting us get closer to the object than ever before.
Watch as Catherine examines the book in preparation for a display, and turns the pages. She tells us how the manuscript would have been used, shows us the exquisite illustrations, tells us about the parchment that it is made from, and how notation was scraped away with a knife when the liturgy changed.
Examination steps:
Looking at the illustrations - The Feast of the Assumption: 01:04
Looking at the illustrations - masks: 01:57
How the pages are numbered - foliation: 03:24
Examining burn damage and holes: 04:11
Turning the pages: 06:14
How was parchment made?: 06:17
Looking at the illustrations - The Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary: 09:09
Examining lettering: 09:44
Scraping away of notation and changes to the text: 11:33
Ink damage: 14:00
Closing and opening the book: 14:52
See the choirbook in our Fragmented Illuminations: Medieval and Renaissance Manuscript Cuttings display, until 8 May 2022: www.vam.ac.uk/exhibitions/fra...

Just to say - on the gloves question - don't just take our word for it. You may be interested in this link from the British Library:

The employee who suggested doing educational ASMR videos in the museum deserves a raise.

V&A: I'm so happy you didn't wear gloves! They are never used professionally when handling parchment or old paper and it's a shame that most tv shows fall into the trap of showing gloves only because viewers expect to see them.

For everyone feeling perturbed about her not wearing gloves: “According to the Library of Congress, wearing gloves while handling antiquarian books may do more harm than good. Portland State University Library Special Collections follows their advice to handle most rare and valuable books with clean, dry hands.”

As a history addict, and a longtime ASMR viewer, these videos are absolute gold for me!

It's just incredible to me that somewhere, someone in the 15th century wrote this book and had a little accident with a candle. Probably continued their day and didn't think much of it besides being somewhat annoyed.

This was the crispiest, crunchiest book I have ever heard. Thank you for sharing!

So many people decrying the lack of gloves as if a professional curator doesn't know better than random KZhome ASMR junkies 🤣

This book is so well preserved. Imagine how many hands have touched the pages that she's touching now... the person who made it probably never thought his artwork would live to be admired centuries later by thousands of people.

The amount of work that went into these types of things is utterly staggering. I wonder if the creators had the slightest idea that someone would be looking at it in so much detail 530 years later. Just crazy.

this is possibly the most soothing asmr video i have ever watched- educational asmr is not something i knew i needed so much until now. and catherine's voice is immensely soothing. more old manuscripts with her please!!

Believe it or not, I’ve often wondered how flipping these pages would have sounded like. I was sure it would be nothing like paper, but of course I never got to touch an ancient manuscript (and probably never will)! So thank you for making this sound accessible to the modern world 😍

The artisans who created these are unsung heroes. And yes, the audio from turning of pages is very satisfying.

It's such amazing shape for a book created centuries ago! The drawings are still so vibrant and the callography so clear and crisp.

I LOVE that you’re doing this series! Great ASMR and beautiful material. More soft spoken art historians describing images please!

Such things of beauty we created when we dedicated them to something higher than our own selves...remarkable work, privilege to see it. Wish we could get a sequel and hear what the pages said.
