It may be obvious, but I love medieval metalwork. The armor, the jewelry, the fantastic book covers. I’ve been fortunate enough to have seen some in person at various museums.

Some museums are very guarded with images of their work, but the Met and the Walters give you amazing access to their collections. If you are ever looking for inspiration from the masters, you can find it 24 hours a day from anywhere in the world with internet access.
