The scene of the Annunciation, one of the most relevant and beautiful executed brilliantly by the illuminating Master, is one of the most ambitious images of the illuminated manuscript.

In this book we propose to offer the reader the possibility of contemplating the beautiful, the noble, the mysterious and the aesthetic that shelters each of the thirty selected images of a group of codices, which are part of our artistic and cultural heritage that we have inherited Of our ancestors. Each scene is different, it is conceived individually, none is equal among this bunch of images; certainly there are parameters established by the development of the narrative, but the painters in his workshop began their work by making the miniatures that served as the head for each of the Hours and, without any doubt, in a spectacular way, the Annunciation and therefore it is always one of the most attractive for its beauty.
