    The Bible Illuminated book

    Posted by Cori Borges on 15th Jul 2019

    This book presents the provenance and purpose of so many illuminated texts. It is written in a very easy to read style and the artwork is spectacularly amazing. It would be especially fun to read for those who are descended from many of the various texts owners. A terrific book to own for one's own library or to give as a gift.
