Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

More than 350 decorative designs in this impressive collection, including 256 letters, display the glories of extant medieval manuscripts. Exceptionally rare letters and borders that once enhanced medieval bibles and other rare manuscripts are ornamented with exquisite florals, gem-like geometrics, curvilinear motifs interwoven with religious figures, and superb embellishments.

Comprising a practical archive of usable lettering for artists and craftworkers alike, this impressive collection also provides medievalists with a wonderful glimpse of the ancient art of manuscript illumination.
