For Jewish Libraries, Marc Michaels talks about his recently published Sefer Tagin Fragments from the Cairo Genizah. In this volume Michaels transcribes and recreates fragments of arguably the earliest found manuscript of the manual for sofrim (scribes) concerning the decorative tagin (tittles) and 'strange' letter forms that adorn certain words in the Torah.
