Medieval alphabet

As I told you in my presentation, I'm fond of historical letters, manuscripts and illuminated letters and pages.

So, here are my first two letters of my second alphabet, which are painted on pieces of parchment with home made colors. Each letter will be "inhabited" and are inspired by actual letters from manuscripts.

C is from a XIIe century manuscript and N from a late XVe.
I hope you will enjoy them, I'm having fun painting them !


  1. So you're the first to get started on your second alphabet - and it's going to be a stunner! This is such a creative idea and room for lots of variety - can't wait to watch it develop!

  2. My goodness... you ARE an early starter...and this is fabulous.

  3. It is looking great. I would love more details on the home made colours. x te
