No illustrations and only a few illuminations, but still an interesting page.
The first and succeeding ‘Princess’ receive their usual crowns, but this time the first ‘April’ gets no illumination. The central illumination that follows is quite remarkable though. Here we have another ‘April’ appearing and this time the name gets a full treatment.
The image is a powerful vignette – a shining sun, raying up and over a field of blue flowers, all contained within an interesting blue and green frame
The succeeding illuminations pull the story forward. The first is of another house, only this time in a much more modest rendering. Set like a small cottage among the trees, it’s a beautiful white affair with red trim. Inside the windows welcoming lights set the interior aglow. The last illumination is of a march of flowers — daises — that sort of point the way ahead. These are beautiful watercolor renderings with soft pastel hues. Just remarkable.
