About this book

The fascinating court of Rudolf II produced nothing more amazing than the Mira calligraphiae monumenta, a flamboyant demonstration of two arts - calligraphy and miniature painting. The combination of word and image is rare, and on its tiny scale constitutes one of the marvels of the Central European Renaissance. A selection of 41 of its pages is here made available to a wide audience for the first time.
