An important milestone has been reached in the Polonsky Foundation England and France Project: Manuscripts from the British Library and the Bibliothèque nationale de France, 700-1200. The book which accompanies the project has now been published, in paperback, in English and in French.
Medieval Illumination: Manuscript Art in England and France, edited by Kathleen Doyle and Charlotte Denoël, can be ordered online from the British Library, or bought in person from the Library in the shop outside the also-fabulous exhibition Anglo-Saxon Kingdoms: Art, Word, War, either way for just £10!
The French edition is titled Enluminures Médiévales: Chefs-D’œuvres de la Bibliothèque nationale de France et de la British Library.
The book, with which I provided a little editorial assistance, features highlights from the 800 manuscripts digitised by the two institutions.
