The website Five Books recently published a review by Marc Michael Epstein highlighting Dorothy Verkerk’s book Early Medieval Bible Illumination and the Ashburnham Pentateuch as one of the five best books on reinterpreting medieval art. You can read the full review here: Verkerk’s book is innovative, Epstein says, because her “brilliant analysis -. . . says that one can read across the page chiasmically, like an ‘X’. Or one can skip and go back.  In other words, it seems that the reading of images is not necessarily linear, sequential and chronological.” Congratulations Dorothy!
