More than 350 decorative designs in this impressive collection, including 256 letters, display the glories of extant medieval manuscripts.

Comprising a practical archive of usable lettering for artists and craftworkers alike, this impressive collection also provides medievalists with a wonderful glimpse of the ancient art of manuscript illumination.
