Editor
“Miraculous signs! Previously in a private collection, this spectacular Renaissance manuscript is made public for the first time in a facsimile edition. The Book of Miracles illustrates myths, prophecies, and reports of calamitous events from over two millennia, in dramatic images that captivate the viewer with their expressive power and astonishing modernity.”
