My confused mind focuses once again... :^)
1) The image is in _Knights_ by Andrea Hopkins, but I'm positive it
can be found elsewhere too. I know someone has shown it to me in a
little book that is now obscured in my memory. Doing searches on
Guillaume de Machaut and the illuminations that go with his music
texts might be a start... If you like, I can scan it and send it to
you with as much attribution as I can find. This will have to wait
probably until Sunday, though. Just respond to me privately here so I
have your email address.
2) Also, if you hop on over to the ageofthecotehardie yahoogroup,
Gwyndlyn just posted a redrawing and photo of a tomb effigy that
portrays an overgown with buttons to the floor. It's German, from
1368. Her photos can be found under her name in the Photos section of
that Yahoogroup's home page.
