As part of the display we have had the amazing opportunity of exhibiting some very rare and beautiful objects, on loan from the University of Leeds Brotherton Library: 3 intricately decorated books of hours.

Due to the delicate and sensitive nature of these loans the manuscripts have to be protected from light and have the pages turned every 7 – 14 days to prevent any light damage. The books can only be on display for a short amount of time. The first book of hours has now been returned to the Brotherton library and replaced with an equally stunning manuscript.
|The book of hours has had a special mount made to safely hold it open for display|
Don’t miss this rare and special opportunity to view these incredibly beautiful books.
This exhibition is part of the You Are What You Ate project, funded by the Wellcome Trust and in partnership with Wakefield Council, the University of Leeds and the University of Bradford.
