Book #61

Scroll in a box

This is another double-rod scroll format. The scroll is permanently bound inside a box where it can be rolled up in either direction to facilitate reading. As far as I know, there is no special name for a scroll in an box like this. Similar, but fancier, boxes are sometimes used for reading or displaying Qur'an and Torah scrolls.

Peter and Donna Thomas' book, More Making Books by Hand, has instructions for making a scroll like this.
