This book offers definitions of techniques, processes, and materials used in medieval illuminated manuscripts. Presented in an easily portable format, this volume includes concise and readable explanations of the technical terms most frequently encountered by the museum-goer along with numerous illustrations, many of them in color.
"Highly recommended for a wide range of readers."
"Not only does it make lucid the most complex conventions of the illumination, but it is also a pocket history of the Middle Ages."
