    Free Books of Hourskindle ï eBook Phaidon Miniature Editions Books of Hours , Phaidon Miniature EditionsI love illuminated manuscripts and books of hours This is a beautiful little volume and I look at it regularly Really wonderful images and informative text a very well made volume that has withstood years of reading It still looks new Of course I take good care of my things but some books are so shabbily made they simply fall apart This didn't and I really appreciate that because books are to be treasuredThe images are full colour and cover the entire page It has them on almost every page Glorious images that make the heart soar The book itself is uite small you could carry it in your coat pocket and I have Some people may have trouble with the print size but a small book is unlikely to have large printThis could be given as a gift or as a keepsake it's that kind of special book

    Free Books of Hourskindle ï eBook Phaidon Miniature Editions Books of Hours , Phaidon Miniature EditionsI read the many reviews of this book before buying and I'm glad I ignored the bad ones The reproductions are at or near the original size and are absolutely beautiful and I'm a professional print buyer having worked in the world of fine art They are not at least in my copy fuzzy at all I should point out that they are not meant to be viewed through a magnifying glass as the printing screen pattern the coloured dots is necessarily relatively large compared to the overall size of the imagesAs a small selection of some of the most beautiful manuscripts from the middle ages or as a devotional object I cannot recommend this tiny book too highly
