The Tudor Book of Days is a beautifully designed perpetual diary for keeping important dates, events and seasonal notes in a personal day book. The diary pages have six days in a double page spread and list important Tudor events by month and by day. The book has a section with biographical details of important Tudor figures.
The Tudor Book of Days is inspired by the Book of Hours, the prized possession of a Tudor person. Primarily a private devotional book, it listed holy days and hours for prayer, but was often used to record births and marriages, important events and festivals, or to write messages of affection between friends.
