Thanks for the link, CL. Beautiful work. For those of us who can't afford the whole book, Facsimile Editions sells some single leaves:

Please keep in mind that my Hebrew is far from perfect but I thought it was spelled "Halftorah" not "Haftarot." I realize that the Brits may not have a good transliteration. Again this is not a reflection on you CL.

re: #1 jaunte

Oh, wow, thanks for pointing that out. I was so distracted by the beauty of the work on the main page that I didn't even notice that. I have a few leaves from Qur'ans, prayer books, and Persian poetry, etc. and I'd love to have one of these too. Gah, but my budget for this month is already taken. I hope they have some left next month... *sigh*

Thanks, I'd have no idea if they got something wrong. Wikipedia has a bunch of different spellings, so maybe it is a British thing.

I love to learn something new every day. ;)

Alouette or LudwigVanQuixote may have a better idea than I do. I too like illuminated manuscripts and I am told that the Book of Kells is beautiful. Unfortunately it is in Ireland and there are no photographs of it.

Hopefully, Alouette will come along and see it and comment. If not, I'll ask her next time I see her.

The Book of Kells, oh gosh, yes. I've seen lots of gorgeous leaves from Bibles and the Book of Hours, but the nice ones are soooo expensive. That new St. John's Bible is amazing too! They all make me *swoon*

Haftarot is the plural form.

Haftarot is the plural form.

Did you down-ding PhillyPretzel for having rusty Hebrew??

"Haftorah" is the portion from the Prophets that is read after the Torah on Sabbath and holidays.

These manuscripts are awesome!

What is all this, then?

There is an anime titled The Secret of Kells which retells the mythology and was absolutely enchanting, if you're into that sort of thing. I did a writeup on my geekblog here:

[Link: www.haibane.info...]

it's probably wrong of me to label it "anime" in fact. I'd love to see more animation in this unique style. It's actually on Netflix streaming so if you have an account, I highly recommend it.

BTW CuriousLurker, I was hoping to contact you about a blog-relaed matter but don't have your email - would you drop me an email? apoonawa dash blog at yahoo ...

I saw "The Secret of Kells" and it is exquisitely done, but probably not appealing to someone who has been ruined by Disney products.

re: #14 Alouette

I'm probably about as ruined as they come by Disney :) Just took my girls to Orlando in fact!

There's quite a large space between Disney animation and anime/amerime/eurome (those last two terms were just invented by myself on the spot, thank you very much), and I think enjoyment of them is not zero-sum - its just different, like comparing Lord of the Rings by Peter Jackson with 50 First Dates.

The Secret of Kells is not an anime; it was produced in Belgium, Ireland and France.

re: #12 Alouette
That is neat. I did not know it was there. Thanks. :)

Playing With AI-Generated “Art”I haven't really explored NightCafe's free online AI Art Generator (creator.nightcafe.studio) tool yet. I have only done some preliminary tinkering around with it but, I have to say, I'm more impressed with the results than I anticipated considering how little ...

Indigenous Americans Ruled Democratically Long Before the U.S. DidDemocracy: it was older and more widespread than we thought. At the Oconee site, called Cold Springs, artifacts were excavated before the valley became an aquatic playground. Now, new older-than-expected radiocarbon dates for those museum-held finds push back the origin ...
