So what word do we have this week……actually it is very apt given the article that I am going to be sharing with you this month.

INCUNABULA

A book or pamphlet in its initial stages, created during the early time of typography but in any event printed before the 1500’s.

Incunabula is the plural for the Latin word incunabulum meaning ‘place of birth’ or ‘the beginning’.

I wonder if William Caxton knew of this word when he was writing his early works!
