Synopsis: Dust jacket notes: "Created for calligraphers who wish to progress to illumination and decorated letters, this book provides a unique collection of illustrative material to be copied, adapted, or used as a source of inspiration. Christopher Jarman, an accomplished calligrapher and teacher, gives easy-to-follow, step-by-step instruction in the techniques involved in illumination (including gilding, outlining, and applying color) and shows how to use most effectively the wealth of visual references provided in this book. During the Victorian period, there was a great revival of interest in medieval arts. It was illumination, however, that fascinated artists and craftspeople and, in time, became an extremely popular hobby. This generated the publication in Europe of manuals that gave for reference page after page of richly decorated alphabets, intricate initials, and colorful borders and motifs, all painstakingly copied from precious and rare manuscripts, as well as from architecture and other ornamental sources. Illumination for Modern Calligraphers offers an extraordinarily varied selection of visual material from this nineteenth-century treasure trove, along with all the practical instruction necessary to learn and to master the rewarding art of illumination."
