Monsters and grotesques in medieval manuscripts by Alixe Bovey( Book )

19 editions published between 2002 and 2006 in English and Spanish and held by 489 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The monstrous creatures that embellish the pages of medieval manuscripts have a long pedigree. From their origins in classical antiquity, the Bible, scientific writing and folklore they travelled through centuries and civilisations to find vivid expression in medieval religion, literature and art." "It is easy to forget that these creatures are not merely decorative but often have symbolic importance. Griffins and satyrs, dragons and demons, unicorns, serpents and many other creatures provide evocative and revealing expressions of medieval thought, morality and humour." "Monsters and Grotesques in Medieval Manuscripts describes the rich and varied symbolism of monsters, as depicted in an extensive range of medieval manuscripts from The British Library's collections, and lends a special insight into the medieval imagination."--Jacket

Tacuinum sanitatis : an early renaissance guide to health by Alixe Bovey( Book )

6 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 154 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Tacuinum Sanitatis is a richly illustrated guide to health. Made in Padua in the 1450s, it contains 130 miniatures illustrating substances and activities conducive to health and happiness, ranging from food and drink to singing, sleep and sex. Its scribe and artists enjoyed the patronage of a circle of humanists who flourished in the Veneto in the 1450s and 1460s, including the Venetian governor of Padua, Jacopo Antonio Marcello, and his great friend King Rene of Anjou. A window into the everyday lives of affluent Italians in the fifteenth century, the Tacuinum Sanitatis brings to life the fascinating domestic arena of the early Renaissance."--BOOK JACKET

The universal addressability of dumb things by Mark Leckey( Book )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 124 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Turner Prize-winning artist Mark Leckey presents the latest in Hayward Touring's celebrated series of artist-curated exhibitions. "The Universal Addressibility of Dumb Things" explores the tenuous boundaries between the virtual and the real, between the 'dumb' and the animate. As modern technology becomes ever more sophisticated and pervasive, objects appear to communicate with us: phones talk back, refrigerators suggest recipes and websites seem to anticipate our desires. Through a conceptual assemblage of archaeological artifacts, contemporary artworks and visionary machines, Leckey proposes an exemplary network of objects, an 'Internet of Things', all communicating, talking away to one another and, implicitly, looking back at us. The most imaginative, innovative and authoritative thinkers and writers in this field are brought together in this book, practitioners of art-writing, cultural criticism and the history of technology. Three unique, new texts deal with themes including monstrosity, the power of writing and the boundless power of the Internet
Jean de Carpentin's book of hours : the genius of the Master of the Dresden prayer book by Alixe Bovey( Book )

5 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 117 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the 1470s, one of the most innovative artists working in Bruges illuminated a Book of Hours for Jean de Carpentin, lord of Gravile and a prominent citizen of Normandy. Known as the Master of the Dresden Prayer Book after one of his other masterpieces, this artist and members of his workshop enriched the pages of Carpentin's manuscript with miniatures, historiated initials, and boldly coloured borders in which human figures, monsters and monkeys are framed by twisting branches of acanthus

Medieval art, architecture & archaeology at Canterbury by British Archaeological Association( Book )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 92 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the time of the foundation of its cathedral in 597, Canterbury has been the epicentre of Britain’s ecclesiastical history, and an exceptionally important centre for architectural and visual innovation. Focusing especially but not exclusively on Christ Church cathedral, this legacy is explored in seventeen essays concerned with Canterbury’s art, architecture and archaeology between the early Anglo-Saxon period and the close of the middle ages. Papers consider the relationship between between architectural setting and liturgical practice, and between stationary and movable fittings, while fresh insights are offered into the aesthetic, spiritual, and pragmatic considerations that shaped the fabric of Christ Church and St Augustine’s abbey, alongside critical reflections on Canterbury's historiography and relationship to the wider world. Taken together, these studies demonstrate the richness of the surviving material, and its enduring ability to raise new questions
