The Medieval Beastiary

Wow, I just came across this website and am enjoying the images.  I would like to see these images enlarged and embroidered, or painted.  What about embroidered patches applied to gowns, robes, or tunics?  I am not a weaver who can weave images, but I would like to see some of these illustrations woven on a large loom.  Wow!  These images are so beautiful.  Thanks to Digital Humanites, the digitization and access of these beautiful images can be enjoyed by everyone!

Catalogue of Illuminated Manuscripts

This link from the British Library is wonderful for searching medieval illuminated manuscripts. Due to the generous funding of several non-profits and national education programs nearly 1,000 manuscripts have been digitized and can now be viewed online.  The manuscripts include languages of Latin, Greek, and Hebrew.
