The Sexy Codicology Shop

Cool things for sexy codicologists and the medieval manuscripts lovers!

Sexy Codicology and the DMMapp are big projects, run by just two people and zero funding!
To pay the bills we decided to create posters, pillows, phone cases, and more, with images in the public domain and graciously made available by the respective housing institutions.
Here you will find beautiful illuminated manuscripts that we have ever so slightly enhanced so that they look good on your iPhone case, bag, pillow, etc.
Bring those medieval manuscripts out of the repository and under everyone's eyes again!
