During the Middle Ages books made from parchment, written laboriously by hand, illuminated with gold, and painted with costly pigments, were prized by ecclesiastical and lay patrons as the most desirable of possessions. Join us on this six week course to explore various aspects of medieval illuminated manuscripts and some early printed books, including the close study of examples from the V&A's collection.
