A Book of Love

I appreciate old books as much as I appreciate hand lettering. Who doesn't? When I happily stumbled upon this treasure online I had to share it. You are looking at a 15th century, heart shaped book of hours. Don't you wish you could hold look through it? I know I do!

As an Anglican Christian I love the beauty of the Book of Common Prayer with it's concise yet packed prayers and elevated language but I have yet to find an edition shaped as a heart. I suppose I will have to master the skill of illuminated manuscript and make my own.
