Medieval Monks Meet My Millenium

Amazing manuscripts including medieval books and one of Leonardo Da Vinci's notebooks (that he actually always carried with him in a pouch tied to his belt) are published in detail in the British Library online gallery. Click here to see. Fellow bibliophiles can 'leaf' through these ancient texts using technology called Turning the Pages. The items are so precious I wore white cotton gloves whilst clicking and dragging my mouse over the virtual pages.
