Lee Hendrix, Thea Vignau-Wilberg Nature Illuminated: Flora and Fauna from the Court of Emperor Rudolf II . The court of Holy Roman Emperor Rudolf II produced nothing more amazing than the Mira calligraphiae monumenta, a brilliant demonstration of two arts-calligraphy and miniature painting. Those who love and collect beautiful books will be endlessly fascinated by Hoefnagels imagery and invention. The combination of word and illustration is rare and, on its tiny scale, constitutes one of the marvels of the Central European Renaissance.Nature Illuminated reproduces forty-one pages from the original codex. The project began when Rudolfs predecessor, Ferdinand I, commissioned master calligrapher Georg Bocskay to create a model book of calligraphy. The accompanying commentary identifies and explains the details of Hoefnagels exquisitely crafted illuminations. A preeminent scribe, Bocskay assembled a vast selection of contemporary and historic scripts.Years later, at Rudolfs behest, miniaturist Joris Hoefnagel filled the spaces on each manuscript page with insects, fruits, flowers, and other botanical images.
