After reading about this illuminated manuscript many moons ago, through one of the finest works of the writer Tom Hodgkinson (editor of The Idler magazine), following his analysis of medieval life with this manuscript with its inner calendar, I had to find it!
I hope the pictures speak for how amazing it is as a piece in its own right, but also considering it was created sometime between 1412- 1416, it's stunning!
Anatomical Zodiac man (what a great name for a band that would be!)
Each month tells its own story of medieval life, what a gem!
