Codicology - Amazing Parchment

"The first time I stepped into the manuscript reading room of the Bibliothèque Nationale de France (some thirty years ago), I was overwhelmed by the sheer number of manuscripts in that single impressive repository. [...] I had received permission to photograph and to distribute on line. Circulation started as an ftp distribution site in 1993 (before the web browsers were commonly available) [...] A breadcrumb trail of my experience with the beautiful art from the middle ages."
