    Illuminated Letters Sketchbook

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

    Bring letters to life with plant and animal motifs, swirling vines and leaves, graceful arabesques and flourishes, fantastical imagery, and more. Draw creatures cavorting across the page as Gothic illuminators did, or create the knotwork seen in famous Celtic manuscripts.

    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.

    Includes an elegant spring-green ribbon bookmark with which to keep your place.

    Jane Sullivan is a Medieval-style illuminator and fantasy artist. Her other works include guides to illuminated lettering, calligraphy, and drawing fairies and other fantastical beings.
