Designing English - Weston Library Oxford


Earlier this month I was lucky enough to visit the latest exhibition at the Weston Library - Designing English, with the lovely Revd. Rattue.


Do go if you can, as there are some beautiful manuscripts on display, here are just a few which caught my eye...this lovely herbal...


...this very long and thin one...


...a hymn book...
 

...some patrons...


...a romance...


...and an illustration showing which part of the body are controlled by which sign of the Zodiac.


This is a calculator.


Note that the snake is female...


...and this king is very bored.


I wish all books looked like this.
