Michael Camille's 'history of death in miniature' explores not just the life and death of a single medieval artist, nor a society's obsession with the macabre, but the relation between mortality and image-making itself. Imaginative, innovative, deeply researched, and illustrated with some of the most striking images of the Middle Ages - many of them previously unknown - this book will fascinate general readers as well as students of medieval art and culture.
