Discovering Handwritten Manuscripts

On the occasion of Geneva’s Salon du livre, spring 2018, visitors to the University of Geneva booth were invited to play a game created by the Bodmer Lab using digitised handwriting samples from the Bodmer collection.

As envisioned by creators Marc Kolakowski, Sophie Schell and Sylvain Hugues, the game offered players an opportunity to explore French-language manuscripts in a light-hearted way, starting from simple identifications but requiring them to be progressively attentive to the documents.

The game is now online on the Bodmer Lab site: will you dare to play?
