I don’t know about the job, but I *love* this photo.
I like it, too.
I do too.
This is Latin Manuscript #98 from our collection, if I remember correctly it is from the 14th Century. The text is a lives of the saints, written on vellum and in its original binding (new endleaves though). It still amazes me that these objects have survived so long, and that I get to hold them in my hands every day and get paid for it.
