Jurjen Munk

Jurjen Munk is currently following the Research Master History and Philosophy of Science in Utrecht after having finished his Bachelors History and Philosophy in Groningen. In his studies he is interested in the interaction between art and science in Europe in the Early-modern period. Besides studying what is written in the books, he also studies the book itself by learning Bookbinding and Book Restoration under the private supervision of Wilma van Ipenburg in Gouda. In the ARTECHNE project Jurjen works as a student assistent: his tasks mainly include the digitization of various sources on artisanal techniques for the ARTECHNE research database, such as recipes, books of secrets, and artist handbooks from the period 1500-1900.
