About the Images
- Images were selected based upon their representation of the major
decorative artwork in each manuscript. In some instances, this
just includes decorative and historiated initials (e.g., MS 12),
or a large percentage of decorative borders which frame the text
(e.g., MS 2). When the binding or layout is of some related interest,
images of these were also included.
- A 35mm Pentax camera with macrolens supplied by the Librarys
Media Services Department was used to photograph most of the manuscript
images appearing in this site and the resulting slides were later
scanned professionally and the images placed on Kodak Photo CDs.
Additional images of the MS 11 were taken with a Sony Mavica by
Ron Bouverat of Media Services. Images of MS 27 come from a selection
of slides from the Fine Arts Slide Library. These, in addition
to two slides from MS 11, had been taken by the University photographer,
Dave Broda. The remainder of the images were photographed by graduate
intern, Jennifer Casten.
- The digital camera images and the images from the Kodak Photo
CDs were then adjusted for sharpness and color, and cropped and
resized to 600 pixels wide, and saved as "tiffs" in Adobe Photoshop 4.0. These tiffs were then batch-converted into "jpegs" using Graphic Converter 3.6.2. The resulting jpeg images range in size from 400-900+ kilobytes.
