A feast for the eye; gold leaf, intricate floral patterns, detailed miniatures, cats licking their own butts, and knights fighting snails...

Wait, what  Huh

Remember the old Xerox commercials with "Brother Dominic"?

WW, where do you find this stuff: it’s great; very amusing. I wonder what was going through the mind of the monk.

In the mid 70's I worked in the fine arts section of the Cleveland public library and got to enjoy some of the manuscripts kept under glass and only when I snuck up into the private stacks of the library could I sneak a view of these works. Memories for life. 
Thanks for posting these awesome pics

Nice. Love the artistry and ingenuity. Last year I enjoyed an exhibit of illuminated manuscripts at the Fitzwilliam museum. I studied art and it flips me out to image the people working on these. And the cats licking their butts around the scriptorium, who made it into the missal.The craftsmanship was impressive.
