Les Enluminures Returns to Masterpiece London

London — Les Enluminures is pleased to be returning to Masterpiece London, where the company will share for the second year in a row a themed stand with Daniel Crouch Rare Books on the subject of “Sapiens: Mapping the History of Ideas.” Les Enluminures and Daniel Crouch Rare Books contribute to the fair’s mission as the “world’s leading cross-collecting fair” by exhibiting diverse works in dialog with each other — manuscripts, historic rings and jewelry, with maps, globes, and printed books on travel and exploration.
