[BKARTS] early Irish bookbinding

Greetings to the list,

I was wondering if anyone out there has any information on techniques and
materials for early Irish books (ie. before the Norman invasion). I know
that vellum was used, but how was it bound, and what was the process for
putting covers on?

Any information would be appreciated.
