Y’all have no idea how happy I am right now. Firstly,
Book of Hours, Dutch (Utrecht or Delft)
f. 67r: Mermaid With a Mirror
Netherlands (c. 1410-1420)
Illuminated Manuscript (parchment codex), 125 x 90 mm.
I literally just find stuff like going through illuminated manuscripts (this one’s 179 pages) into the wee hours sometimes. They aren’t labeled, tagged, or marked in any way. No one told me they were there. And then I find something like this, and I get to share it with all of you.
I just really like mermaids okay
