First edition. With medieval manuscripts as a starting point, Lovett shows today's calligraphers, graphic designers and artists how to use them as inspiration for a miscellany of modern day projects. Explains how to create interesting and unique page layouts with a variety of letter shapes, use gold and other metals to highlight and illuminate, and design and paint a coat of arms. Beautifully and extensively illustrated in color and black-and-white with many diagrams to enhance the step-by-step instructions. A reference section provides information of selecting papers and brushes, mixing colors, and preparing and stretching vellum. Includes glossary and index. Well preserved copy.
