one time in 7th grade i stayed up for 3 days straight just to see if i could. on the third day in history class i watched my hand and pencil warp through my desk and my friend beside me nudged me and said “you’ve been staring at your hand for the past 30 minutes” and ever since i always get enough sleep and you should too

ceebleu:

This is a manuscript by Jean Le Joir, a French illuminator. He lived for most of the 13th century and had his daughter, Bourgot assist him with most of his illuminations or drawings.
I haven’t the faintest idea as to what this particular illumination was about, but I just find it beautiful. I was told it’s dated around 1350. For those of you who don’t know, an illuminator is someone who decorates a manuscript. They call them Illuminated Manuscripts. Typically they’re about Alchemy (from the ones I’ve seen) or religious ideals. Often times, they will mix the two together.I’m a novice at this stuff so. :D


Oh, I know this one! It’s the Three Living and the Three Dead, which is a pretty common motif in medieval illustrations. Three kings (or other important people) are out hunting when they encounter three dead guys just hanging out in the woods in various stages of decomposition. The kings unsurprisingly freak out, and the lead dead guy tells him to calm down, because he’s gonna look just like this someday.


The skeleton kings told them to chill..
