Contains ~50,000 objects/documents digitised by Rennes Library and the Museum of Brittany (Bretagne). There are for eg. >1000 illuminated mss pages from the 15th century. Using the site (which has session timer) is a little tricky and best to play around in the 'RECHERCHE AVANCEE' section. Images are good quality and large (eg. double page mss of ~1200x1000px) and browsing is easy through thumbnails once you generate results. (dead link @ 8.1.10 ??!)

New collection of 200 manuscripts from the 9,500 in the Princeton holdings --- "The digitized manuscripts date from the early centuries of Islam until the fall of the Ottoman Empire. They originated in all parts of the Islamic world, from Moorish Spain and northern Africa in the West, through the Middle East, and to India and Indonesia in the East. Subject coverage is fairly encyclopedic, including history, biography, philosophy and logic, theology (based both on the Quran and tradition), law and jurisprudence, language, literature, book arts and illustration, magic and occult sciences, astrology, astronomy, mathematics, medicine, and other aspects of the spiritual and intellectual life of the Islamic world."

Current NYC exhibition. This site consists of 2 exhibits: 'Traces of the Calligrapher - Islamic Calligraphy in Practice 1600-1900' AND 'Writing the Word of God - Calligraphy and the Qur'an'... "In the Islamic lands, calligraphy is understood to leave a trace of the writer’s moral fiber, and the quality of writing is believed to reveal the writer’s character and piety. The tools used to create masterful script convey the elegance of an esteemed art form and reveal the skills of diverse artisans, from paper makers and bookbinders to gold beaters, illuminators, and metalworkers."
