Fitzwilliam Museum Illuminated Manuscripts wall calendar 2017 (Art calendar)

Prior to the invention of the printing press, all books had to be written by hand. Manuscripts are the beautiful manifestation of this craft, and the most precious and expensive of such manuscripts were 'illuminated' through the use of brightly coloured pigments and gold embellishments. Drawing from the Fitzwilliam Museum's extensive collection, this calendar features 12 stunning and intricate details of these beautiful works of art. Informative text accompanies each work and the datepad features previous and next month’s views. Flame Tree: The Art of Fine Gifts. Flame Tree Publishing has produced calendars and diaries for over twenty years. Now the UK’s premier art calendar producer, we work in the global market online and in retail. Each year we spend many hours creating new designs with artists, photographers, licensors, museums and galleries to bring beautiful art into the homes and offices of our customers around the world.
