Goatskin parchment, real medieval paints and 23k gold
     This contemporary miniature illumination was made on private commission using traditional medieval techniques, including 14th c style 23k gilding, and medieval paint made with vermilion, minium, lamp black, and malachite. The words are found above the doorway to the famous library in the Monastery of Saint Gall in Switzerland. My client wanted them to grace his office.
