Les Très Riches Heures du Duc de Berry

A page of text

Folio 110r

This is one of the seven pages that come immediately after the Baptism of Christ, the verso of which was to remain untouched according to the still legible words of the layout artist, "nichil hic, " underneath which a rubric announces a little Sunday Office of the Trinity, which continues to the last page, containing a Monday Office of the Dead.
While the calligraphy is the work of one scribe, and the decoration of capital letters and line endings is by one artist, the initial letters from which foliage breaks into the margin belong to the period of Jean Colombe.
