The Book of Miracles Boxset by Taschen ISBN: 9783836542852. The Book Of Miracles (English). Das Wunderzeichenbuch / Augsburger Wunderzeichenbuch (German), and. Le Livre Des Miracles Borchert (French). Original clam-shell 2013 boxset by Taschen with two full-colour books inside. Excellent condition, collector’s item. The Book of Miracles first surfaced only a few years ago and is one of the most spectacular discoveries in the field of Renaissance art. The near-complete illustrated manuscript, created in Augsburg around 1550, is composed of 169 pages of large-format illustrations in gouache and watercolor, depicting wondrous and often eerie phenomena. The mesmerizing images deal with both biblical and folkloric tales, depicting stories from the Old Testament and Book of Revelation as well as events that took place in the immediate present of the manuscript’s author. From shooting stars to swarms of locusts, terrifying monsters to fatal floods, page after page hypnotizes with visions alternately dreadful, spectacular, and even apocalyptic.
