History of Illuminated Manuscripts
[9780714834528]

Author:

De Hamel,Christopher.

Summary:

Medieval manuscripts are among Western civilization's greatest glories. Laboriously written by hand and often sumptuously decorated, they have always been highly valued and remain as brilliant, fascinating and popular as ever. Christopher de Hamel vividly describes the circumstances in which such books were created, from the earliest monastic Gospel Books to the most lavish Books of Hours. For the second edition of this book the text has been revised and updated, and the whole volume completely redesigned with a wealth of new colour illustrations.
