Description

An ornate wall tapestry inspired from ancient manuscripts, embellished with a medieval style border & hanging loops. The growth of literacy during the 15th Century had provided an increasing demand for books, including translations from Latin & French. The most sumptuous manuscripts were especially commissioned by the wealthy as possessions of beauty, to compliment  their tapestries and plate. Books of heraldry, etiquette, law & languages were popular just as technical manuals are today. While romance, poetry & history were read for pleasure. The age of manuscript was drawing to a close by the end of the 15th Century. One of the first works from the printing press of William Caxton was "Play of the [game of] chess". Caxton & his imitators produced hundreds of titles, revolutionising the book trade.
