Glamping

 If I was one for living in the great outdoors under canvas [which I'm most definitely not] this would undoubtedly be my tent of choice. Its painted decorations are inspired by the Macclesfield Psalter dating from c1330-40. If you'd like to take a peek at the original and slightly bonkers illuminated drawings they're on the link here https://www.fitzmuseum.cam.ac.uk/illuminated/manuscript/discover/the-macclesfield-psalter/section/theme 







I was lucky enough to see this at Michelham Priory last weekend.
