Medieval Christian Book Bindings from the Walters Art Museum

Beautiful online exhibitions from the collection of the Walter Art Museum in Baltimore can be found here: http://thewalters.org/

I found these Christian Medieval book bindings in their rare manuscripts collection. Below, from the top is the cover of a bible of which the artist is William de Brailes (English, active ca. 1230), and the binder is Léon Gruel (French, 1841-1923) (top); a gospel created by T'oros Roslin (Armenian, active 1256-1268) (middle); and the cover of the The Mondsee Gospels by Othlon of Regensburg (German, active ca. 1030-ca. 1050).
