4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent intro to illuminated manuscripts, 20 Feb 2012
I love the colour plates which give a detailed look at the illuminations. It's great to pore over the tiny intricate details.

The author tells the story of how manuscripts evolved and gives the context of the era and culture that produced each type of manuscript.

A fascinating and wonderful book!
