Snail in Danger (Sid) Nicolaides
This could be a good source for readers of all ages. The images chosen include both obscure ones, and common ones that are reproduced at a better quality than is typically found elsewhere. Primary sources, such as surviving letters (both commonly known ones such as those of the Pastons, and more obscure ones), are used to create accessible depictions of the period.

Not exactly all-encompassing, but I enjoyed this dip into the middle ages. The art is nice and I liked the stories of certain people in that age for whom we have actual documentation. In the course of my BA in English, I focused on this period, but it's been a while and it was nice to have a little refresher. Good bedtime read.

I read this book for research on a story I am writing. It gave me a lot of good ideas and I liked the way it was formated. Easy to understand, and it told stories about each even rather than just facts so I found myself really getting into it.

This book was nicely done. The pictures were beautiful and the inserts were informative. I loved the photos of the cathedral architecture.
