Jolies gravures et couleurs.

Illuminated manuscripts are lovely works, Ginnie.

[Donald Duck...current POTUS...is, of course, more efficient with his 140character tweets...]
Ginnie Hart: I so agree on the illuminated manuscripts, Ray. I believe I was a scribe/painter of them in a past life...when there were no tweets.
Lovely image, Ginnie - nicely displayed!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Elizabeth. I love illuminated manuscripts like this and actually believe I made them in a past life. smile
Presumably under a glass case.
Ginnie Hart: Oh, yes, Michael!

I always admire the dedication of creating something beautiful as this. So much details. Wonderful presentation. Some people are able to spew empty words all day long and it looks like this is giving permission for more people to follow... like we have in our country. Empty words, no solutions... sigh.
Ginnie Hart: Sometimes, as they say, a picture is worth a thousand words! (We're on the same page!)

This looks like a labour of love Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: I would definitely agree, Chris.

Oh, I admire you to have seen these illumations - Pentecost and evangelist Luke - Initium sancti evangelii secundum Lucam - really wonderful!
Ginnie Hart: This was our trip to Vasse, Philine, when we got to see you and Mechtild a year ago.

Yes, tweeter Mr. Trump (Trampeltier) should follow your advice - what a political style now!
Ginnie Hart: (sigh)

Thank you for sharing this, Ginnie -it has made my day
Ginnie Hart: I'm so glad, Lisl, because the things that have happened lately (like Betsy DeVos just being confirmed as the USA Secretary of Education) have made me sick to my stomach.

I thought that this may have been one of your Saturday colouring books! "A picture is worth a thousand words".
Ginnie Hart: I would LOVE such a book, Alan, and would be so honored. I actually think I DID "color" these in a past life.
It is amazing how vivid the colours still are Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: So true, Bill. So true.

Looks like the apostles, when the Holy Spirit descended. The other picture is of Jude and the devil (but I could be wrong of course. Difficult to read the old lettering.)

Fascinating these old books.
Ginnie Hart: Yes, Louis, very fascinating. I love looking at them!
What wonderfully bright illuminations!
Ginnie Hart: The coloring books of old, Mary! smile
No more words, lol i will put up a song for you in my post... lovely shot
Ginnie Hart: When we are ready to scream, no words are left to be said! Thanks.
I admire the skill of the people who used to produce these beautiful documents all those years ago, thank goodness so many of them have survived.
Ginnie Hart: I so much agree, Brian!
As soon as I saw this photo and read your comment on it, that saying came to my mind stating that an image is worth a thousand words. No additional words needed! smile Beautiful illustration...
Ginnie Hart: It's so true, Petra, and sometimes we need to be reminded of it...like in today's political climate! Thank you.
there are millions of words in this very nicely framed image Ginnie....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: I like that, Peter. smile
So vivid and so colourful!
Ginnie Hart: And so very old. We could learn a lot from that, I think?

Lovely smile
Ginnie Hart: It really was, Cherry. Thanks.
Gorgeous colours in that graphic novel.
Ginnie Hart: HA! I like the way you think, Michael. grin
Well they say it speaks a thousand words Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Yes, they do, Chad!
Magnificent book with beautiful colors. Illuminations are really splendid
Ginnie Hart: They play an important part of our history, Marie, don't they. We don't make them like that anymore, I'm afraid. (sigh)
very nice title, Ginnie and wow.. the colours really pop out here!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Ayush. What they achieved back then is so utterly amazing, isn't it!

This is quite telling ... and sometimes, i feel an image can speak more than words. I would be interested in seeing more images from that book.
Ginnie Hart: Too bad it was in a case, not to be touched, Emily, because I, too, would have wanted to see more pages!
Wonderful work!
Ginnie Hart: Not something anyone takes time to do today, I'm afraid, Tom. (sigh)
