Summary
"Animating the Letter explores developments in writing in the Middle Ages. Laura Kendrick's subject is the ways in which images - the beautifully designed and decorated letters in illuminated manuscripts - empowered writing." "Kendrick's clear and accessible writing is enhanced by 107 photographs of medieval manuscripts. Animating the Letter will surely appeal to medievalists, but it will also appeal to anyone interested in the history of writing and the development of the book in Western culture."--Jacket
