Treasures & Tea: Red Ruling in Early Printed Books Dr. Erin Kelly (Department of English) Ruling, lines drawn around the text block and sometimes under headings, is ubiquitous in medieval manuscripts. But why add red ruling to printed books? By displaying instances of red ruling in individual copies of early printed books (including examples from the archives at University of Victoria!), Dr. Kelly will demonstrate how individuals red ruled their books to customize mass-produced objects and in the process signalled how both books and texts were consumed.
