Precious Outrageous Sublime turned 2 today!
Sorry folks I haven’t posted here much lately, it’s summer and I was traveling through Russia, Serbia and Israel; but now I’m back for some intensive Medieval Latin (translating Augustine, Hrabanus Maurus, Jerome and more), and I promise to soon start posting the most precious, outrageous or sublime medieval artworks I’ve photographed during my travels. In the meantime, the image above is from:
Boccaccio - Les nobles et cleres dames - 1493

The “Codex Rotundus” owes its name to its round shape. It is a small book of hours (9 cm diameter) made in Bruges in 1480. Thumbnails are most likely from the workshop of Dutchman Willem Date illuminator (active from 1450 to 1482). (Hildesheim Cathedral Library, Germany)
