According to a tweet from Sophie Reinders, this account book from the House of Borghese weighs 60 kilograms. It is housed in the Vatican Archives. Thank you Erik Kwakkel for retweeting.
I guess one shouldn’t really complain that it’s mousetrapping.
It’s beautiful! It must be difficult to open a book of that size without damaging the spine, though.
True enough. And of course it is rather hidden away in the archives, so it’s not being opened every day! Nice top stain design too.
Thanks for the comment.
