Illuminated Manuscripts in London

I visited the British Library today to see the illuminated manuscript exhibition. Wow. They have some wonderful works in there. I've been inspired. 

Although I was a bit disappointed that I had to pay £9 to see them. All the other exhibitions I've been to at the British Library have been free. They ran a good one on science fiction during the summer and that was free so I don't know what's going on. 

If you get a chance the exhibition is running until March. If you don't you could always download the app for the exhibition. Yes they have apps. Now if only I had an iPad. Hmmm. Christmas is coming. 


  1. I am so jealous! I loved London when I visited a few years ago. The exhibit looks amazing. I love how steeping yourself in the art of another era can spin your thinking in a whole new set of directions.

  2. Those look like amazing manuscripts!

  3. Stunning!

    If I ever get to London before March (unlikely, but you never know), I'll have to go.

    Thanks for the heads up :)

  4. Aren't they wonderful, though? Amazing how much work went into them ...
