The ancient art of illuminating manuscripts is currently attracting many new enthusiasts among artists, art students, and lovers of calligraphy. The Bible of Illuminated Letters is a volume they'll all want to add to their collections. It presents step-by-step instructions for recreating twelve illuminated alphabets. Among them are Celtic, Saxon, Gothic, Romanesque, Modern Revival, and seven more, including several modern scripts. Detailed diagrams instruct on creating upper- and lower-case letters, as well as on ways for designing borders and decorations. More ambitious students can also follow clear directions for gilding--decorating with gold leaf--as was originally done in medieval European monasteries. Readers and students of illumination who open this book will find: a history of illumination; required tools, techniques, and materials for illuminating; instruction in layout and design; and steps to follow in order to create 12 alphabet styles. This beautiful book also features a picture gallery of outstanding historical and contemporary illuminated letters, as well as a glossary and index. More than 400 inspiring color illustrations in total.… (més)

This book is truly a treasure for your eyes as well as your mind.
The pages are filled with information both written and full color photographs
taking you through step by step demonstration on how to create Illuminated Letters.
The printing of the gold in this book is breath-taking . The colors are rich
and exciting. The book takes you from materials, to layout and design and then
through the completion of a project.
The history and samples of many of the illuminated letters developed over the
centuries including the beautiful borders of each era are shown.
It is well worth checking this book out of our Kaligrafos library
and even adding it to your own. ( )

This gorgeous book deserves a place on every calligrapher's shelf. It sparkles with gold, lays open flat, and provides instruction for historically-accurate techniques. What more could you want? I love just browsing through it. ( )
