The John Paul Getty Museum has a wonderful two part digitized exhibition of illuminated manuscripts from the twelfth to the sixteenth centuries. These manuscripts are from the Netherlands and Belgium which were important centers of manuscript production and they "were created for an international clientele of princes, dukes, cardinals, bishops, and wealthy burghers." The exhibition offers visitors high quality images, as well as audio clips by the museum curators about specific manuscripts. Also, there is an audio clip about "The Visions of the Knight Tondal" narrated by the Los Angeles Times' film critic, Kenneth Turan. There are two PDFs of illustrated checklists for each installation, where visitors can read a description of each of the works, view images, and click on hyperlinks that lead to sections of the digitized exhibition on the website. The "Publications" link offers two titles for those visitors interested in learning more. One of the publications is by one of the curators of the exhibit, and the other is a guide to technical terms that are associated with illuminated manuscripts.
