    This catalogue of a 2009 Baltimore exhibition celebrates the last flowering of popular illustrated Books of Hours in the reign of Francois I, before devotional material suffered from increasing church censorship in the later 16th century. The photographs of manuscripts and printed books are complemented by three introductory essays covering the genre's history, the styles of illumination and the challenges of printing on parchment.
