Some of the greatest achievements of the Middle Ages are its soaring cathedrals and imposing castles. While many survive, others have disappeared, and it is to illuminated manuscripts that we must look to get an idea of their appearance. With illustrations from manuscripts in the Getty Museum and the British Library collections, this book examines medieval artists' treatment of architecture, both real and imaginary, and the insight it provides into the evolving styles and construction methods of the period.
