S738. Shell Gold Tablet
Powdered gold with a gum arabic binder. Comes in a transparent plastic container with a lid. Close lid after use.
Use with a brush or pen to add real gold decoration to manuscripts, scrolls and calligraphic works. Shell gold can complement areas of gold leaf or it can be used alone.

We have discontinued the larger sizes because they did not offer any cost savings. Our small shell gold is approximately 7.5mm diameter x 4mm thick. However, size & weight varies slightly depending on the amount of residual water.

Shell gold prices are based on the worldwide gold market and may be different from what is printed in our catalog.

B4214. Art and History of Calligraphy / Lovett
B4214. Art and History of Calligraphy by Patricia Lovett. 2017. 224pp. 8.5"x11". Hardcover.

Presents first a well-illustrated history of calligraphic hands from early Roman Cursive and Uncial through to Edward Johnston’s Foundational hand. Next is a longer chapter on how manuscripts are made, covering: pens, pigments, metal leaf, brushes, and vellum, and how they were used to letter, gild, and illustrate manuscripts. A series of full- or multi-page plates of 75 manuscripts follow, with a description of the manuscript, the significance of its text, the hand used, and other facets of its production. The first 50 or so pages span the third through the sixteenth centuries. From English revival and forward are plates from William Morris and Edward Johnston and from fifteen 20th-century scribes.
