Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Images in the Margins is the third in the popular Medieval Imagination series of small, affordable books drawing on manuscript illumination in the collections of the J. Paul Getty Museum and the British Library. Each volume focuses on a particular theme and provides an accessible, delightful introduction to the imagination of the medieval world.

An astonishing mix of mundane, playful, absurd, and monstrous beings are found in the borders of English, French, and Italian manuscripts from the Gothic era. Unpredictable, topical, often irreverent, like the New Yorker cartoons of today, marginalia were a source of satire, serious social observation, and amusement for medieval readers. Through enlarged, full-color details and a lively narrative, this volume brings these intimately scaled, fascinating images to a wider audience. It accompanies an exhibition on view at the J. Paul Getty Museum from September 1 through November 8, 2009.

Book News Annotation:

One of a series of well-produced popular books showcasing the riches of the Getty's collections, this delightful volume presents close-ups of the fools, monkeys, hunters, birds, beasts, fish, and monsters that populate the margins of some of their illuminated manuscripts. Nishimura (medieval art, Rhode Island School of Design) provides the text and captions. There is a list of references, but no index. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
