The study is devoted to quire making methods in parchment codices, and offers an just one example of the results that can be obtained solely through the systematic collection of seemingly ‘silent’ data (the dorsal axis, the lisières, the marks left by holes, the streaks that sometimes straddle multiple surfaces, and above all the areas around the axillae, which are thinner and more porous than elsewhere on the skin) and their statistical processing.

Abstract

The study is devoted to quire making methods in parchment codices, and offers an just one example of the results that can be obtained solely through the systematic collection of seemingly ‘silent’ data (the dorsal axis, the lisières, the marks left by holes, the streaks that sometimes straddle multiple surfaces, and above all the areas around the axillae, which are thinner and more porous than elsewhere on the skin) and their statistical processing.
