Employees of Biblioteca Angelica Demonstrate a Book that Opens Six Different Ways

Dear Members and Followers,

This 17th-century dos-a-dos structure opens in six directions. The video gives an idea of the beauty and refined technique with which this artifact was created. It is a true masterpiece of printing and bookbinding crafts.
