Blue world
This amazing image is part of a series of maps in a manuscript from the 1460s. What is striking is not just that we can so clearly recognize Europe, Asia and Africa, but that these continents are depicted so incredibly beautifully, in deep blue and gold. The map seems to float in space and above it various winds are blowing, produced by men with toy trumpets. Clouds are quietly drifting by. Who can resist jumping in and becoming part of this intoxicating blue world?
Pic: New York, Public Library, MS 87 (15th century). More blue maps from this book here.

The Wellcome Library has acquired a gorgeous  15th century manuscript with fold-out illustrations relating to astrology and medicine. Previously unknown to scholars - in fact, it turns out to have been owned by eccentric English poet Edith Sitwell.
