% Golf Book (Book of Hours)  Art book - A luxurious manuscript of captivating loveliness 



The person for whom this marvellous Book of Hours was made is still unknown. Running along the bottom of the pages in the calendar is a series of images that have always been of great interest. They depict sports activities and other pastimes typical of the period when the manuscript was made. One of the games portrayed is golf, the reason why this book is also known as the Golf Book. In addition to these small, marginal scenes, the pages of the calendar are characterized by a series of miniatures depicting daily work and leisure activities typical of the 16th century.

This lavish art book contains all the charming miniatures depicted in the famous British Library manuscript. They are the work of the greatest Flemish painter of the first half of the 16th century, Simon Bening.
