Description:

The New York Public Library has a vast cornucopia of medieval and Renaissance illuminated manuscripts, and this gorgeous website brings together over 2,000 manuscript pages from these volumes. The works date from the 9th to the 16th centuries, and they "give vivid testimony to the creative impulses of the often nameless craftsmen who continually discovered new ways of animating the contents of hand-produced books." These works include a 10th century Ottonian manuscript (complete with its imitation of Byzantine textile with gold decoration) and the Towneley Lectionary, which was illuminated by Giulio Clovio. Visitors can click on the Collection Contents to get started with an alphabetical list of all the works here. Additionally, they can click on Related Subjects to look for complementary materials within the Library's digital collections.
