Catholic Illustration

The Morgan Library & Museum in New York city is currently exhibiting the "Hours of Catherine of Cleves." Even if you don't live close enough to check it out in person they have a terrific website set up.
A "book of hours" was a handmade, hand-lettered, illustrated book of psalms, prayers and devotions that was popular in the middle ages. Each of them of course is unique and some of them are quite elaborate in their page decoration and illustrations.
All of them are a great source of inspiration.
