Walsh Video received a thank you letter from the University of Pennsylvania Libraries for donating a three volume DVD set of the 8th annual Manfred R. Lehmann Memorial Workshop in the History of the Jewish Book. Last May, we videotaped this highly specialized academic workshop for Penn's Jewish Studies Program. The topic was From Manuscript to Print: Reading Colophons, Title Pages, and Other Paratexts, and there were forty participants, mostly librarians, from across the country. One funny moment for us was when Prof. Schmelzer told a joke in English, but gave the punch line in Hebrew. The whole room laughed, and we were left hanging!
