Published to accompany the historic exhibition at the Met, this oversized catalogue (9x11.25") presents an essay by Holcomb (associate curator, medieval art, Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York) and detailed entries on the 49 unique and precious medieval manuscripts or parts of manuscripts gathered from international collections for the show. Holcomb's essay and the entries detail the drawing techniques employed while also discussing what is known about the scriptorium where the manuscript was made, the contents of the manuscript, and its use. In keeping with the high quality typical of this publisher, the volume is heavily illustrated with superb color plates. It's distributed by Yale U. Press.
