Online Exhibition of Illustrations From Medieval Books

Here's a nice site to visit: The Medieval Bookshelf: From Romance to Astronomy. This is an online exhibition of some of the material that had been featured at the J. Paul Getty Museum earlier this year. There are samples here of illustrations taken from non-religious medieval books (e.g. The Consolation of Philosophy, The Romance of the Rose). There are seven illustrations shown—enough to give some good examples and to leave the viewer wanting more. Via Plep.
