It was one of my favourite meals, it was wonderful, chomping into it. To suddenly sit in front of somebody and it was almost like looking in a mirror, although she had dark eyes and I had light eyes. History[ edit ] Even this level of decoration is richer than those of most books, though less than the lavish amounts of illumination in luxury books, which are the ones most often seen reproduced. While complete Books of Hours can be expensive, individual leaves written out and decorated by a scribe six centuries ago, can be found for little more than the price of a new hardcover book about illuminated manuscripts.

    Such additions might amount to no more than the insertion of some regional or personal patron saint in the standardized calendar, but they often include devotional material added by the owner. Printed books couldn't compete with the beauty of hand-illuminated volumes. The reward is a book that testifies to an irrepressible thirst to learn. By being narrated by Finch's six-year-old daughter Scout, the unfairness and incomprehensibility of the situation is illuminated further, seen through the eyes of an innocent child. Books of Hours often included a calendar of holy days, and scribes typically indicated the most important days with red ink.

    These were sometimes with spaces left for the addition of personalized elements such as local feasts or heraldry. A generation later, Duke Philip the Good of Burgundy was the most important collector of manuscripts, with several of his circle also collecting. It's fascinating to go back to s rural Canada and see how similar it looks to our current landscape. The Latin text is a devotion to Saint Christopher.
