"This event here is actually is us being able to interact with all different ways that books have been produced for thousands of years, really, but looking at all different aspects of the art of the bible," Assistant Professor, Heidi Johnson said. "So this is kind of a mix of people being able to watch, see and do demonstrations, as well as being able to do hands-on activities."

Some of those activities included paper making, writing with quills, drawing celtic knots and more. There were also several demonstrations to enjoy such as calligraphy, ink making and drawing illustrated borders.
