Calligraphy and Illumination January 2009
January 31, 2009, a Purple fret for Khadagan Jochilun. I did both the Calligraphy and Illumination. The calligraphy is an eastern or Bari type Beneventan Minuscule. The border is based on a border motif from the 11th century Bari Exultet Roll.
January 31, 2009, a Bronze Ring for Miguel de Santiago. I did both the Calligraphy and Illumination.This was based on the Berlaymont Hours, c. 1470-1475, a Book of Hours comissioned for a gentleman. The Berlaymont hours use an unusual color scheme of ochre, brown, teal, and a deep dusty rose/salmon.
