Paris in the 1400s. A young girl named Marguerite delights in assisting her father, Jacques, in his craft: illuminating manuscripts for the nobility of France. His current commission is a splendid book of hours for his patron, Lady Isabelle, but will he be able to finish it in time for Lady Isabelles name day?<br /> In this richly illustrated tale, Marguerite comes to her fathers aid. She journeys all over Paris buying goose feathers for quills, eggs for mixing paints, dried plants and ground minerals for pigments. Then she expertly finishes the illumination of Lady Isabelles book, to the delight of her father and his patron. This delightful book, brought to life by the finely detailed, evocative art of a renowned childrens artists, was inspired by an illuminated manuscript in the collection of the Getty Museum.
