Reviews

"Written in a lively and enjoyable style and including examples spanning the early Middle Ages through the Renaissance, Making Medieval Manuscripts is an informative account of the process of how medieval books were created."--Choice
"Christopher de Hamel's Making Medieval Manuscripts, a revised edition of his 1992 Scribes and Illuminators, is a copiously--and beautifully-illustrated survey of the materials and techniques used to create handwritten books in the Middle Ages... De Hamel has taken effective advantage of the opportunity to improve the design and illustrative content of the book. For readers who own and refer to the 1992 edition, then, the 2018 edition will be most welcome."
--Lisa Fagin Davis "The Medieval Review "
