You can find images of the 'Book of the Hunt' (ie 'The Hunting Book of Gaston Phebus' at the Getty Museum online: 
I believe the book is currently in the ownership of the Getty in California - I got to see a page once, it was amazing.  

The Hunting Book of Gaston Phebus (Manuscripts in Miniature) by F. Avril (Editor), W. Schlag (Editor), M. Thomas (Editor) 
     This is the expensive copy, around $80. 
There is also an inexpensive paperback copy, many have found it at Half-Price Books: 

Also found these links: 
And you can google and find a lot of other images.  

Other diapering instruction can be found online at the German site for the Gottengen Model Book:
And the facimilie book, which is out of print (I was surprized to find 5 copies from $95. and up available online):
The Gottingen Model Book: A Facsimile Edition and Translations of a Fifteenth-Century Illuminators' Manual by Hellmut Lehmann-Haupt (Author), Edmund Will (Author), 

The Gottengen Model Book also has instruction for the Acanthus leaves painting and design. 

Enjoy, Hillary

Try The Hunting Book of Gaston Phebus.  It is full of lovely diapering ideas.
