"It is not often that a scholar can say they have identified a new genre of artwork. Yet Kathryn Rudy has achieved just that in this thoughtful study of parchment paintings."--Mary Wellesley, Apollo--Mary Wellesley"Apollo" (09/01/2015)
'Yale has produced the first published book to identify and give us an insight into these types of images... It is a must for history lovers, but will be enjoyed by all who turn its glorious pages, with some unforgettable illustrations.'--Bill Spence, Yorkshire Gazette & Herald. --Bill Spence"Yorkshire Gazette & Herald" (08/05/2015)
"[Kathryn Rudy's] study is both provocative and well documented, generously illustrated and appealingly written, with a lively awareness of the medieval practices that are likely to draw in non-specialists as well."--Elizabeth J./I>--Elizabeth J. Moodey"Historians of Netherlandish Art" (10/01/2016)
"[An] exuberant study . . . Rudy is an agile spelunker of books, delving with brio into their recesses. The abundant details that emerge from these excavations never seem to grow ponderous, and they are always leavened by Rudy's effervescent prose."--Sonja Drimmer, caa.reviews
