Item Description...
The British Library houses one of the world's great collections of illuminated manuscripts, and Janet Backhouse has drawn on this rich resource to make a selection of outstanding examples that span over 800 years of medieval book production. She begins with the Lindisfarne Gospels and continues with a representative cross-section that reveals the remarkable variety and richness to be found in medieval manuscripts. With a concise introductory text and informative captions, this is the perfect introduction to an endlessly fascinating subject.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A lot of information in a thin volume  Apr 9, 2008
This is a great book for someone just developing an interest in illuminated manuscripts. Its primarily a picture book, but also contains a lot of information on the how's and whys of these beautiful books and is easy to refer back to. The author is English so a good many of the plates are from English books, however she does include works from other parts of Europe as well. Worth the rather meager investment, as I'm sure this thin volume will stay on my book shelf for a very long time.
Good Broad Overview of Illuminated Manuscripts  Jul 2, 2000
Covering a wide span of time and styles, from the Lindisfarne Gospels (Interlace, c 700) to Italian neo-classical revival in the early 1500s, this book provides a good overview of the subject. Written for the layman rather than the scholar, it nevertheless has an informative introduction on manuscript creation. Since there are examples from 70 manuscripts, descriptions of each are necessarily brief, but still interesting. It is a pity that not all the illlustrations are in colour, but there are still many good-quality colour plates at or near full-size.

This is definitely one to have on the shelf.
