Illuminated Manuscript

Codex is thick like wood, hence the latin term “block of wood.” It evolved from the scroll. A random access file is one in which records can be stored randomly and sequential access is one in which the records are placed in a specific order. Illuminated manuscripts are usually more colorful and contain more images than a codex would. Craftsmanship is the quality and completion of a project by a skilled worker. it is important to finish a product with good quality so that customers are pleased and you have an interested audience. The format of the codex is still popular today in the way books are formed such as dictionaries, textbooks, etc. It contributes to appearances of new products, designs, and projects.
