Description:

Sumptuously illustrated with colour plates, these four de luxe volumes contain masterpieces of Byzantine art – miniatures, titles, and headings – found in the illuminated manuscripts of the monasteries of Mount Athos. A feature of this magisterial work is that its pages contain colour miniatures now published and described for the very first time outside Greece. Here the reader will find incomparable specimens of Byzantine art at its finest, one of the most truly aesthetic expressions of Byzantine civilization and post-classical Greek tradition.The superb technical finish of the originals is preserved thanks to the impeccable colour printing of the volumes, enhanced by high-quality craft binding and slip cases heightened in gold.Thus the book itself aspires to the level of a true work of art for the collector, with great value not only for students and scholars but for all those who are admirers of Byzantine civilization.
