VARI Leman Album interdisciplinary research plan mindmap

January 13, 2017

At a project planning meeting today, Dr Victoria Button showed me a fantastic diagram she had made of the different areas of research that the Leman Album project team are delving into with their investigation.  Victoria is one of the V&A’s Senior Paper Conservators, and she is also the Project Lead for the Leman Album.  Though it is not anywhere near as colourful as Leman’s early 18th century drawings for the production of silk, this diagram gives a fascinating sense of the breadth of expertise that is pooled by the research team itself, as well as the highly interdisciplinary nature of this project.  For more on the album, the project and the team, have a look at the description on the VARI website — Leman Album: An Enhanced Facsimile.
