Illuminated letters are a medieval tradition, incorporating calligraphy and illustration with hand-decoration and gold-leafing. The letters I design are art objects that are meant to last, so I use all archival materials and 22K gold leaf. All of these samples were made to order and designed to the specifications of my clients. For this reason, very specific illustrations can be included (illustrations of family pets, for example). The cost varies according to the complexity and detail of the design. I will create a rough draft for your approval before I begin the finished piece.
