Two great calendars, in spite of Henry VII spoiling August on one….!
I have just bought this British Library “Illuminated Manuscripts” calendar for 2017. It’s gorgeous, and the illustrations are magnificent reproductions. I bought it from Amazon – couldn’t find it on the British Library site.
If you follow the link, you can see small pictures of all twelve illustrations. August’s picture is of Henry VII adoring the Immaculate Conception of the Virgin, but it doesn’t look in the least like him. More like Edward IV! And anyway, August is only one month out of twelve. Right? So don’t let him put you off. It’s still a great calendar to enjoy.
There is another gorgeous calendar available, again at Amazon, but this time from the Fitzwilliam Museum. http://tinyurl.com/zlms8yp. This time I haven’t spotted any sneaky Henrys.
