The Art of Drawing Illuminated Manuscripts

6 Historic Books on CD Illuminated manuscripts were a high art form in the Medieval era when books were drawn and copied by hand. Each artisan put his personal touches on the volume via a technique known as illumination of the manuscript. That art form has been preserved through the centuries and is explained in great detail in the 16 volumes that make up this collection.
