Why We Love This

A vellum manuscript page from a 15th-century French Psalter, inscribed with Psalm 80: "Rejoice to God our helper..." Fifteen lines of text on each side, written in a fine batarde hand in brown-black ink with red rubrics. Eight single line initials in alternating gold and red and blue. Large five-line initial "E" in red with floral design on gold background. Floral border of blue, red, and gold flowers. Lovely black and red penwork extends from several initials.
