Hello and welcome to my Medieval Manuscript page. On this page
you will find a few of the many manuscripts that I have done for
a Medieval re-creationist group that I am a member of. These are
all drawn in pencil then the illuminations (or pictures) are
painted. Then the calligraphy is added and finally there are
some final touches like vines, flowers and assorted things that
I add for a little personal touch like little beasts and such
hidden in the pictures and in the lines of the script.
The leaves of this scroll are gold leaf as
is the border where the gold is. The picture below is a close up
of the beginning capital letter "O" with a little picture in it
of the lady receiving it. She is seated at a loom and is working
diligently away at her sewing.
The second set of pictures are of a very
large scroll that I did for a couple who were both getting an
award. The scroll pictured here is a copy of the original. I had
a local copy shop copy it and because it was so large they had
to do it in two pieces. As you can tell from the tape down the
middle of the picture of the couple kissing in the center, I was
not very happy with these pictures but they are all that I have
of this particular piece. The original turned out much more
beautiful than the poor quality pictures let on. The calligraphy
is in the German language.
Another very large scroll (over 24 inches
wide) made for a couple award as well. This one was also in
Two others. One male and one female,
generic with no names. The names were added later--His in the
red space provided and Hers in the blank space just below the
large "G" The pictures below these are of the details of
the Man and Woman. Because of the shiny gold leafing (especially
on the background of the male) it is very hard to photograph.
The flash simply washes out the picture especially near his
feet. Sorry about that
scroll was for the King Reinmar of Artemisia
traveling to the Quest for Camelot and needed to recruit some
warriors when he arrived. This scroll was for a roster of the
fighters he recruited while he was there.
Thank you for looking at my
Medieval Manuscript replica page. If you would like more
information about these or any other projects please
email me and I will try
to answer any questions you have. If you would like to
commission a scroll and would like an estimate of costs (they
are very reasonable considering the amount of time and work
involved) just email me
and we will discuss options, prices, payment and shipping.
Thank you for looking, have
a great day!
