I am procrastinating this morning…also it has been nearly two months since I last updated this blog, I even failed completely to keep up with #blogjune, even though I had a posting plan this time ie a list of potential topics.
I just had a look at BibliOdyssey which I haven’t looked at in ages and the current post features a very pretty manuscript on gunpowder, that was published in 1594. Surprisingly, it’s full of pretty pictures: colourful, surreal, spectacular…there’s even pictures of dragons.
I want! It would look really nice on my shelf. I don’t think there’s a facsimile available alas so I suspect I’m out of luck this time.
