This week’s competition prize is Colour: The Art and Science of Illuminated Manuscripts edited by Stella Panayotova, published by Harvey Miller Publishers (£65).
This richly illustrated catalogue accompanies the exhibition that celebrates the bicentenary of the Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge with a display of its finest illuminated manuscripts. Over 150 manuscripts are displayed in the exhibition dating from the 8th to the 19th century and all are catalogued and fully illustrated here. The manuscripts are grouped in 14 thematic sections each of which is introduced by an essay that includes further relevant illustrations and presents the scientific and art historical analyses in a broader cultural context.
For your chance to win simply answer the following question and send your name and postal address to firstname.lastname@example.org before midday on 9 September.
