still illuminated after all these years


Did you know you can still buy illuminated manuscripts? well . . . . facsimiles of them anyway. Unbeknownst to me Facsimile Editions of London has been cranking these puppies out this whole time. With prices that range from $7,000 to $26,000 they have something for every pocket book. Just think of all those penniless starving smelly monks scribbling away in a scriptorum for nothing but gruel, bread and water , hmmm gruel IS bread and water isn’t it?
Regardless of whether you can afford them, the site is worth a visit, just to read the histories of the volumes.
