A history of carrots in illustrated manuscripts


The New Yorker’s Book Bench blog referred to me to the World Carrot Museum site where there is a wonderful article on carrot illustrations in manuscripts.

Apparently, carrots were being written about as early as AD 512. The illustrations in this article are well worth seeing.

I have never blogged about carrots in literature before.
