Un auténtico deleite.

Desde «El libro de Kells» hasta el «Decamerón de Boccaccio», pasando por «El Génesis de Viena» o «La Divina Comedia» de Dante, abrir «Codices illustres» es como abrir la puerta a un mundo privado muy valioso. Disponible en un nuevo formato, este libro radiante acerca al lector a 167 de los manuscritos más bellos e importantes de la Edad Media.

Estos paradigmas de las miniaturas y las iluminaciones de los siglos IV al XVII, presentadas con magníficas reproducciones en gran formato, pertenecieron a algunos de los personajes más ilustres de la historia. Considerados auténticos tesoros de la historia del arte, valen su peso en oro y suelen guardarse a buen recaudo en colecciones privadas o archivos custodiados con grandes medidas de seguridad. Hasta hoy.

Aunque la colección se centra en los manuscritos europeos, también se han seleccionado ejemplares mexicanos, persas e indios que muestran el refinamiento y la complejidad de la ilustración de culturas ajenas a la europea. Una sinopsis detallada de cada manuscrito orienta el lector, mientras que un apéndice de 36 páginas reúne las biografías de los artistas, así como una extensa bibliografía, un índice y un glosario de términos técnicos.

As much as I appreciated the grand overview of the Art Nouveau style that this book gives, once I hit the halfway point I found myself flagging in relation to the writing. Don't get me wrong; the reproductions are quite wonderfully done and the writing style isn't too academic, but I found myself feeling like the author was just listing names, dates, and places after a certain point. I'm very well versed in both Gustav Klimt, Alphonse Mucha, and the general outlines of art history, but trying to tackle multiple movements in multiple countries began to feel extremely overweighty. Next time I'll search out the individual artists.… (mer)

CODICES ILLUSTRES :
THE WORLD'S MOST FAMOUS ILLUMINATED MANUSCRIPTS : 400 TO 1600

Miniatures in mediaeval manuscripts
continue to hold a huge fascination
for today's viewer, and large exhibitions
of illuminated codices - whether in Paris,
London, New York, Milan or Heidelberg
- frequently attract over 1o0,00o visitors.
It is above all the thrill of seeing, in the
display cabinets, precious treasures upon
which we would otherwise never set eyes
treasures which once belonged to emperors,
kings and princes, and of which only one
single copy exists in the whole world, treas-
ures which are worth millions. And, of
course, we are dazzled by the glittering gold
with which the painters embellished their
miniatures and at the same time showed
off the wealth of their patrons.

This book takes us right to the heart of
mediaeval book illumination and presents
167 of the most beautiful, most important
and probably most famous illuminated
manuscripts from A.D. 400 to 1600. No
comparable survey of the finest codices
from twelve centuries has previously been
attempted. Even though our compilation
focuses mainly on Europe, no less than 23
codices from Persia, Turkey and India bear
witness to the flowering of Oriental
manuscript illumination.

The manuscripts are presented and
discussed in chronological order. Each
manuscript is introduced by a summary
reviewing all the most important facts
about its date and place of origin, format,
extent, language, content, miniaturist
decoration, patron, owners etc., in order to
orientate the reader at a glance.

Wherever possible, the folios and miniatures
are reproduced in their original for
mat, and in an endeavour to convey the
opulence of the originals, 212 pages are
printed with gold as an additional colour.

A comprehensive appendix presents a
further 20 important manuscripts which
could not be treated in the main text.
Artists' biographies provide additional
information on the lives and works of the
miniaturists, and a glossary explains the
technical terms used. A comprehensive
Bibliography lists further reading.
