    Epub Image on the Edge eBook â Image on Epub / Ü franzbielmeier.de Ü image epub, edge epub, Image on book, Image on the Edge MOBIWhat a fascinating little book Camille uses the marginal illustrations of medieval manuscripts as a window into a complex alien world of medieval culture and its symbols A medievalist would gain much from this book but what struck me is just how foreign 12th 14th Century Europe was in class composition values imagery And yet there are rich prospects here for the scholar of contemporary communications echoes of trolling selfies gross out humor perversions indulged and condemned the creative products of a time of social change urbanization class turmoil and disruptions of tradition This may not be the best first book for the non medievalist looking for insights into the history of liminal o

    Epub Image on the Edge eBook â Image on Epub / Ü franzbielmeier.de Ü image epub, edge epub, Image on book, Image on the Edge MOBIA good overview to the topic if a bit thin on the ground with regard to references so some statements appear uite general Offers many insights into the meaning of medieval marginalia not just as doodles or illustrations but as active in producing the meanings of a text I especially enjoyed his contextualisation of these within the world of monasticism and the comparisons between reading and 'chewing over' the word with the help of marginal illuminations Overall conclusion of the book and his comparisons with modernity is only really explicitly explored in the last 3 pages it is again relatively thin

    Epub Image on the Edge eBook â Image on Epub / Ü franzbielmeier.de Ü image epub, edge epub, Image on book, Image on the Edge MOBIThis book is good because of the subject what do all those seemingly random doodles on the margin mean? Why is a knight fighting a snail? Why is a giant head with two legs walking around? But it suffers in my reading from vaguely rambling and disorganized writing I don't know why one section follows another Still it's short and I don't know of any other books on this neat little subject so it's a keeper
