Description
Create intricate, decorated letters, and then enhance them with brilliant gliding and rich hues. The Illuminated Alphabet puts a marvelous variety of alphabets and embellishments at your disposal! Whether you’re looking for simple or the elaborate examples, you will find enormous elegance and beauty in your illuminated lettering. From interlacing spirals of Irish script to the spiraling tendrils of the Gothic style, you’ll re-create beautiful alphabets that have been admired throughout history. Pore through the history of illuminated letters, at the artists who created them, as well as the patrons who commissioned them. Each alphabet includes diagrams for upper and lower-case letters, ideas for borders and decorations, a materials list, instructions for gliding, and a fabulous gallery of historical and modern examples. Combine the best of traditional works and new masterpieces with this indispensable guide to the art of illumination.  The Illuminated Alphabet shows the budding calligraphy artist how to create beautiful medieval lettering that would make the monks jealous.
