I've a delightful book with large pull-out pages depicting the four Devonshire Hunting Tapestries. Currently owned by the V&A, this group of four 15th century tapestries depict medieval life and fashion within the popular pastime of hunting. The set is comprised of Boar and Bear Hunt, Falconry, Otter and Swan Hunt and Deer Hunt. They are believed to be of the International Gothic style of about 1400, but possibly made between 1425-1450. It never ceases to amaze me that textiles have survived the general havoc of nature and destruction of mankind.
