We are very excited to announce that our new book, The Illustrated Cairo Genizah, is now available for pre-order! See to order.

2024 marks 50 years since the founding of the Genizah Research Unit at Cambridge University Library. To celebrate our 50th birthday, we are publishing a large coffee-table style book to share the highlights of the Cambridge Genizah Collections. 320+ manuscript images are presented over 12 thematic chapters, accompanied by facts, background, and answers to frequently asked questions.

The book is available to pre-order in the UK - see the UK order link here - and these sales go directly to supporting the GRU's research and education programming (did you know we're funded almost entirely by outside grants and donations?). The UK copies are available at a greatly reduced shipping cost, but we have a limited supply. If you're not in the UK, you can order directly from Gorgias Press to have the book shipped from the United States.
