Editorial Reviews

Review

“A handsome, entertaining account of the peculiar fashion for grotesque, obscene, and humorous presences on the margins of medieval illuminated manuscripts.”
, Times Higher Education

“Looking at medieval manuscripts more and more closely, peering with pleasure into the borders of bunnies and monkeys, whether we seek deliberate smut or idle whimsy, it makes Image on the Edge well worth reading. It is an entirely diverting and unusual book.”
, Art Newspaper

“If the study of medieval art is not to remain an esoteric and elitist discipline then more books like this must be written.”
, Burlington Magazine

“Camille’s polymathic essays undoubtedly will provoke such studies and will expand the field of questions we ask . . . and in this he will have made a valuable contribution.”
, Oxford Art Journal

"This is an interesting book that will make the reader examine manuscripts and sculpture more carefully and understand the Middle Ages more comprehensively. . . . It is a book that will broaden your idea of medieval art in an enjoyable way."
, Yorkshire Gazette and Herald
