Editorial Reviews

Review

“[St. Albans Psalter is] both impressive in its scholarship and perfectly readable for the interested layperson.”—Los Angeles Times


“[This book] reveal[s] new information on . . . the fine art of manuscript illumination. . . . In a mind-boggling act of restoration, the Getty removed the painted leaves of the book from its original binding in order to study and compare them.”–Western Mail


St. Albans Psalter: Painting and Prayer in Medieval England investigates the style, iconography, themes and different sections of the manuscript, its original purpose and several of its continuing mysteries.”—Church Building & Heritage Review
