Illuminated Manuscripts
Illuminated manuscripts have been handcrafted for hundreds of years. Historical texts were
made carefully using animal skins that were cured and then beautifully decorated
using vegetable dies, calligraphy, gold leaf and intricate designs.
The main identifiable characteristic is the large ornate first letter of the text.
This project will allow you to explore both the depth of the text and integrate artwork and
creativity using the traditional techniques used traditional.
