Black Hours  
I adore the Black Hours and other dark-grounded manuscripts (shocking, I know) . They have been under discussion on one of my lists and I'm reposting them here for general enjoyment and future reference. Also - attention dance/music geeks - one of them is a dance manual!

excerpt from MS 493 (Morgan Library)
I got to see this one up close! Sadly, no photograpy, but lots of geeking staring... and trying to keep the drool off the case.

Also: The Hours of Mary of Burgundy, which is only a partial black book.

Mmmm... now I want to work on C&I. I'll get a chance on Sunday, happily. :)
