Medieval Art Links from Caer Anterth Mawr

Welcome Page from the British Library

This is another wonderful set of finds from, published and maintained by the Barony of Caer Anterth Mawr in the Kingdom of Northshield.

For a scribe, this is a little bit like crack.  Really.

The Caer Anterth Mawr "Art and Clip Art Page"

Clicking on "Medieval Art Links" <> takes you to

with links to (this is an incredible list!):  Art Journals, Artists, Brasses, By Civilization, By Period, Clip Art, Early Printing, Manuscript Illumination, Murals and Frescos, Paintings, Sculpture, Stained Glass, and Tapestries.

"Turning the Pages" from the British Libary

If you can resist long enough to scroll down without clicking, you will see one of my favorite links, "Turning the Pages" from the British Library - "works available online for you to read just like you were sitting there holding them in your hands."  This includes the Lindisfarne Gospels, Lutterell Psalter, and the Sherbourne Missal.  Oh, and some "sumptuous Arabic calligraphy" as well.

If that doesn't make you break out the parchmentine and the gouache, nothing will!
