Item description for Flemish Miniatures from the 8th to the Mid-16th Century (Single Titles in Art History) by Maurits Smeyers...
A beautiful overview of the development in style of the miniature. From the anonymous and modest early Romanesque illustrations to the luxurious late Gothic miniatures of Simon Marmion or Lucas Horenbout who, in the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries, exported their Flemish masterpieces as far afield as Spain and Russia. Never before has the reader-viewer been presented with such a complete overview of the art of Flemish miniatures from the eighth to the sixteenth centuries. Never before has a book presented such a fascinating history of eight centuries of the art of miniatures from the Low Countries. Never before have so many miniatures - more then 600 colour illustrations - been reproduced in one book.

Beautiful book Nov 22, 2006
Got this book as a gift and am very pleased with it! Lots of gorgeous full-color pics of manuscript illuminations from several centuries. Great commentary on the pics and the styles of each period. Although pricey, this book is quite large and quite full of illuminations and the history of Flemish manuscript making. Well worth it for the modern scribe or anyone interested in medieval book illumination.
