Book bindings

The binding module was developed as part of the DFG-funded project "Database-supported cataloguing, research and digital presentation of the Refaiya family library (2008-2013)." The classification and description of the ornaments is based on the standard work by Max Weisweiler: Der islamische Bucheinband des Mittelalters nach Handschriften aus deutschen, holländischen und türkischen Bibliotheken, Wiesbaden 1962.

As a pilot model, this module serves to demonstrate the description scheme. To date, it only contains a few sample datasets.
