Marginalia from the Macclesfield Psalter: Man Riding an Ass, c. 1320-30

The Macclesfield Psalter is an unusually lavish illuminated manuscript of psalms, created in East Anglia during the late Medieval period. The psalter was acquired by the Fitzwilliam Museum in 2005, and is now one of the jewels in an already overflowing treasure trove of illuminated books. The illustrations found in the margins of the text reveal many curiosities and grotesques which bear little relation to the psalms themselves, such as this nude man riding an ass backwards. Use him to clean your lenses and screens to a gleaming shine without the need for spray!
