Illuminated manuscripts, which fall into the categories of both religious and secular art, are among the most refined artworks of the Middle Ages. Passionate about illumination and the story of medieval manuscripts, master illuminator and speaker Sylvie David Poirier teaches and shares her knowledge about this art. She offers an illuminating iconographic panorama of Middle Ages manuscripts. A history spanning over 1,000 years: that of the birth of the book and of illustration.
