I was a medieval Monk in a past life. I was. I feel such recognition in illuminated manuscripts. I know the feel of the vellum, the dank of the library, the rough feel of the robe.
Taschen‘s publication Masterpieces of Illumination: The World’s Most Famous Manuscripts 400 To 1600 is EXTRAORDINARY. I will review it by simply sharing some of my sketches (ink on paper) and my medieval sock crow inspired by this book!
