I haven't paid a lot of attention to Italian manuscripts of any era: it's a long way from England, and my gut feeling when faced with Italian Renaissance design (which tends to hog the space in my head marked 'Italian') is 'too many twiddles'.
But my views are changing somewhat, with a newfound interest in foliage, acanthus leaves, and painting in perspective. And so today's beautiful image is from Sforza Hours
Plus a very pleasing hand - huge Gothic letters, that somehow do not look crowded, even on a tiny page - pages measure 130 x 95 mm. Amazing.
