B4145. Illuminated Letters Sketchbook by Jane Sullivan. 2016. 160pp. 6.3"x8.5". Hardcover

Learn how to illuminate your writing like the scribes of the past!

Step-by-step tutorials, tips for creating striking effects, and blank letterforms you can illuminate yourself make this the perfect modern-day guide to the medieval art of beautiful writing. The book contains space on pages for the artist to create their own letters right inside the book (the pages are printed with a light blue graph).
Includes an elegant spring-green ribbon bookmark with which to keep your place.
