The court of Holy Roman Emperor Rudolf II produced nothing more amazing than the Mira calligraphiae monumenta, a brilliant demonstration of two arts―calligraphy and miniature painting.

However, the Mira calligraphiae monumenta was only finished fifteen years later, when the emperor Rodolphe II found the book and asked an illustrator to make drawings for it.
