Hastings Hours by Janet Backhouse

The Hastings Hours is one of the outstanding achievements of Renaissance Flemish illumination, admired and treasured for the superb quality of its miniatures and ornate floral border decorations. The book of hours was the best-selling book of private devotion used in the middle ages and Renaissance, and the Hastings Hours, named after its patron, William Lord Hastings, is one of the finest of these to have survived. In this beautifully illustrated introduction to the manuscript, all of the major miniatures and many decorative borders and details are reproduced close to their actual size.
