Q. Why is your Tumblelog called "My Ear-Trumpet Has Been Struck by Lightning"?
A. Because "My Grandmother's Ear-Trumpet Has Been Struck by Lightning" wouldn't fit in the available space.
Pretty medieval manuscript of the day is St Margaret of Antioch, and the dragon! A lovely historiated initial from a book of hours in the collection of the Walters Museum in Baltimore. I think it’s fabulous!
