"The British Library's collection of Hebraica and Hebrew manuscripts numbers several thousand volumes, including a rich vein of illuminated documents. The thirty glorious images in this book of postcards are among the best in the Library's collection. Included are images from the Duke of Sussex German Pentateuch (c. 1300); the Golden Haggadah (c. 1320), one of the grandest of all Hebrew manuscripts; the Barcelona Haggadah (c. 1350); the Lisbon Mishneh Torah (1471-1472); the uniquely illuminated Lisbon Bible (1482); the Leipnik Haggadah (1740); and several other illustrated treasures. 30 full-color reproductions.
"Pomegranate's books of postcards contain thirty top-quality reproductions bound together in a handy, artful collection. Easy to remove and produced on heavy card stock, these stunning postcards are a delight to the sender and receiver (and probably the mailman, too). They also make great little books (a nice gift for the mailman). This convenient compilation offers a wide selection of gorgeous cards to choose from, making it easy to find the perfect postcard to send to any friend, family member, or casual acquaintance. Note: postcards are oversized and may require additional postage. ISBN: 0-7649-0045-5; size: 4 3/4 x 6 7/8. Available in North America only."--© Pomegranate
