Since all you illumination people are conveniently gathered together, I'll
let you all know that my father just mailed me an article he clipped from
the New York Times on a huge exhibition in NYC on illuminated manuscripts,
partially inspired by the publication of a new book, "The Illuminated
Manuscripts of Medieval Spain" by Mireille Mentre.  The Met will have an
exhibition of "The Glory of Byzantium," 50 books of "exotic illuminations"
from March 6 to July 6.  The Pierpont Morgan will have "Medieval Best
Seller:  The Book of Hours," from Sept (97, I assume) until Jan 1998, and
Ursus Rare Books in the Carlyle Hotel (never heard of it) has "Princely
Magnificence," 50 illuminated 13th-15th century manuscripts until Feb 8
(aka real soon).

Even the black-and-white photo reproduction in the artice of a manuscript
page looks spiffy.  If you're anywhere near NYC anytime in about the next
year, this looks like a once in a lifetime citywide exhibition.  I just
remembered why I miss living in NY.
