“Death Standing in a Landscape” Magnet

A magnet: the classic souvenir. This 2x3” magnet features the illustration “Death Standing in a Landscape” from an illuminated Book of Hours (circa 1470). This miniature opens the text for the Office of the Dead. A standard text in a Book of Hours, the Office of the Dead reminds the owner of the book of his or her own mortality.
