Eighteen hand-coloured engravings are pasted onto the parchment pages in this book of hours. The combination of handwriting and coloured-in prints illustrates the gradual transition from the handwritten to the printed world. Christ’s suffering comes across more powerfully through the blood, applied in red wash with a fine brush, covering his entire body.
