About the book:

Of all the works surviving the Middle Ages, manuscripts are the most common. Hundreds of thousands exist; however, only about 5% are the highly decorated ones we now so admire. Learn about those who illuminated the manuscripts and those for whom they were illuminated. It traces the evolution of the artwork, and the cultures that produced it, by showing the highlights from 750-1500 A.D. Exquisitely executed with over 70 color photographs and illustrations and metallic inks and printed trace-paper inserts. Also in The Art Of series: Aztecs, India, Ancient Egypt, Celts, Japanese Prints, and Native North America.
