Re: Labarinto

I shall don my clamus and think of Merovingian kings and hoo. wOw ! But I'm having trouble picturing you in a ' clamus '.

Re: Labarinto

Re: Labarinto

Well, new to the forum, and a year late, but I was excited to find this page when googling for Andrea Ghisi and Laberinto, after just finding a digital facsimile of his book (Which I've longed for, for several years but never found until now).
