'A great number of the most creative works of art to survive from the Middle Ages (c. A.D. 1000 - 1500) are found in illuminated manuscripts.  In much the same way as today a poet and an artist might collaborate upon an illustrated volume of poetry, so in medieval times the illuminated manuscript was the product of partnership, between scribe (or scribes) - who wrote out the text - and the illuminator (s) - the craftsman who produced the images.  However, as the printed press was not invented until the Fifteenth Century, the entire medieval project was manufactured by hand.'
