The courtly Hunting Book of Gaston Phoebus is the most beautiful and important of the 3 great books of hunting from the Middle Ages. On half-sides of 87 pages miniatures are presented of astoundingly true-to-life animals and dynamic scenes of the hunt, predominantly laid over a wallpaper-like pictorial background (most enriched with golden ornamental art), which is unique to the world of book illumination. Together with the didactical text these illustrations impart the tradition of the hunt to the viewer on an artistically formidable level.
