Discover the secrets of the Rothschild Prayer Book, one of the world’s most important medieval illuminated manuscripts.  The illuminations are presented page by page using the most detailed digital reproduction techniques. Accompanying the interactive digital display will be a showcase of handmade books and printed publications, with several very early printed bibles from the State Library’s collection.

Proudly presented in partnership with the Kerry Stokes Collection.
