  • Michelle P. Brown

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."
