Images of Crystal Codices

As I said previously, images do not do the Crystal Codices Collection justice. And in order not to have huge picture files that take forever to load up, the color is a bit wonky on the edges.

For comparison, here's a link to Bede, Historia ecclesiastica gentis Anglorum, in the Old English translation, early 11th century, leaves lost at beginning and end; formerly MS. 279 Part 2, until bound separately in 1992. At the Corpus Christi College at the University of Oxford in England.

I used a readable handwriting font and printed on parchment paper. Cool, huh? :)

  1. Having a hardcopy of the first Special (I just have to have print-in-hand), I can attest they're pretty darn cool-looking.
