April: Book of the Month

Book of Hours, use of Utrecht - Zwolle, c. 1470-80
  • State-of-the-art Dutch Prayer Book

    In conjunction with our selection for SLAM's March E-Rendez-Vous - connected by the theme of Contemporary Binding - the Book of the Month for April is this Dutch Book of Hours.  


    This manuscript is bound in its original 15th-century brown leather, with a faded panel showing John the baptist surrounded by medallions. Executed by the community of the Brethren of the Common Life at Zwolle, this exquisite book provides a welcome companion to the three other items on display at SLAM's April e-Rendez-Vous event.
