The Illuminated Fightbook has now shipped to all subscribers. Thanks to the bravery of the Royal Armouries in allowing the original manuscript to travel to our printers Senecio, the reproduction is absolutely spot on. One RA curator declared himself “gobsmacked” when he first saw the facsimile. The picture shows some of the fine detail and the bleed through of the image on the reverse, just part of the mass of detail we have been able to capture. Look out for our launch at Live at the Antiquarian Bookfair.
The Illuminated Fightbook will also be on display at the London Antiquarian Book Fair on the 13th, 14th, and 15th June.
