Kathryn Finter - Contemporary Manuscript Illumination

Decorated Letters

This gallery contains illuminated letters in a variety of decorated styles ranging from medieval to modern. Some of the letters are from a series that began as individual works for exhibition, but evolved into a more ambitious project (still in progress) of developing a "How-To" guide showing in detail the stages of design, painting, and illumination that goes into producing each letter. The letters in this gallery are available for purchase (how to order).
