‘A curious mixture’ – commonplace books in the Tasmanian Archives and State Library. With Archivist Jen Jerome

Described as the pinterest or instagram of the pre 21st century, commonplace books are unique stores of thoughts, methods, information, and curiosities. These handwritten volumes – elaborate or plain and humble - have been used for centuries. Commonplace books are personal anthologies which reveal their creator’s likes, interests, values and relationships. Join Archivist Jen Jerome as she shares the secrets of commonplace books held in the Tasmanian Archives and State Library.
