@OpenCulture I stood in front of this book just three days ago, and it is just so stunning how intricate the linework is and how weirdly beautiful the colors are.

One of my favorite factoids I learned about the book, was the technique the monks used to copy the templates which provided the base grids for most pages: cross-view!

By deliberately doing cross-eyes and looking at two very similar images, you get a weird 3D effect. You can check out some examples at reddit.com/r/crossview
