Yay, books!

Tati is in Phoenix today for work, and brought not only my Riverside Chaucer (which I'd lent her a while back), but also a book called "Painted Prayers", in which she had put post-it notes on a couple pages with good examples of 16th-century illumination ... including one that is a display of arms with supporters, helm, torse and mantling.

Definitely getting some good ideas for this project.
I snapped a few pictures at the Huntington Library's "The Bible and the People" exhibit before I was jumped by a guard, who informed that no photography is allowed at all, even without flash. (In my defense, I didn't see a single sign or posting that said that, so how was I to know?)

Click on the picture to see the rest of the gallery.
