This is a stunning set of collectible vintage postcards. They are highly detailed images of the Madonna and Christ.  They illustrate The Annunciation, The Nativity, The Presentation at the Temple, and Epiphany. Each card presents the primary image surrounded by smaller, relevant scenes.

The cards are beautifully illustrated with vibrant colors and shimmering metallic gold detailing.

These illustrations were reproduced from the medieval Bedford Hours manuscript dating to the early fifteenth century. Books of Hours were popular prayer books for the laity during the middle ages.  They were an abbreviated version of the Breviary prayed by monastics. Each Book of Hours is a unique work of art with magnificent illuminations.

The original Bedford Hours manuscript is currently housed in the British Library.
