Had I seen this in a bookstore I wouldn't have paid more than $10. While there are some wonderful examples in the book, it is also filled with some very poor quality facsimiles that detracts from the book in my opinion.

This small book is filled with nice Examples of the Illuminated manuscript. This is a great resource for my Illuminated manuscript / art history lesson & art project. Great book with a good price!

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is a beautifully illustrated large format book which gives a very clear introduction to the topic of illuminated manuscripts. Although it superficially looks like a children's book, it isn't. The format just enables large clear images of these stunning art works. The text, while accessible to a child, does not use kid-speak. As someone who has suddenly become really interested in these objects, not just the art, but the context, this book gave me the language and the overview to then move onto more detailed accounts. I found some of the more detailed books skipped the overview stage.

And I could look at those pictures all day!
