As its name suggests “illumination” means “to highlight”, usually a text, through gold or silver leaf and vibrant colors. Nevertheless, in this book, you will find them as a whole work of art. The techniques, recipes and subjects proposed are carried out with a concern for accuracy in relation to each style: Roman, Gothic, Italian …, each of the models presented develops different approaches and subjects adapted to each level. Your tools will be the parchment and other supports, the pigments, the binders, the inks and of course the gilding. Over the pages you will be a copyist then, after a few basic exercises, the desire to create your own illuminations will transport you through the time of knights, castles, zoomorphic figures and other mystical worlds!
