Recommended – manuscript studies

“Macro-Typography” – by Jean-Baptiste Piggin (a blogger blog)

Offers a running list, subject-catalogue and occasional commentary and images for manuscripts newly-released in digitized form, including those from the Vatican library.

Piggin’s links often go direct to the digitizations, not to the servers of the main sites because, as  Piggin remarks in one post, the main servers are less reliable. He notes that the Vatican site was offline for more than 80 hours between July 23 and July 26, 2015.

Only downside – all the screen-shot images are ‘rights reserved’.
