Roman Message Book

My Mom is a bookbinder, specializing in Medieval bookbinding methods and restoration. Recently she reached farther back in time to make a replica of a Roman wax-tablet 'message-book'; two slabs of oak (cut and chiseled out by Dad) bound by ...leather thongs, with wax poured in the flat, shallow, slab-like spaces. A stylus was used to write on the wax. To erase the message, you just rubbed it out smooth on the wax. The two circular studs in the center of the two pages keep the wax faces from touching each other when the book is closed. Tres cool!See More
