Offering a unique insight in rich detail into the world of the late Middle Ages, this book celebrates the four magnificent Devonshire Tapestries at the V&A: among the greatest 15th-century tapestries to survive the ravages of time. They provide a vivid picture of medieval life through images of the hunt in all its forms and of medieval dress and fashion. It includes pull-out plates showing the complete tapestries in all their glory.
