NYTimes: NYPL Illuminated Manuscripts

Illuminated Pages Capturing a Fading World – New York Times
Though Feb. 11, NYPL displays 100 illuminated books. Also displays some books with additional monitor “page-turner” viewers. Includes a girdle bok, “in this case a breviary in a second wood binding designed to be strung from a belt. It is bound upside down so that it resembles a blocky mallet, and it is one of only two dozen known to exist.”
