Fresh & Fancy  .  modern illumination

inspired by Lindisfarne Gospels

„The Lindisfarne Gospels or book of Lindisfarne is, quite simple, one of the most beautiful and inspiring handwritten and illuminated books in the world, a landmark of human creative achievement and a testament of commitment and faith.“

Michelle P. Brown, Professor Emerita of Medieval Manuscript Studies, University of London

We will have a look at the book, learn about it´s history, explore the story behind. After that, let´s focus on the illuminated headings. We find out about the letterforms, we analyse, draw and discover their beauty. Nothing can stop us then from creating our own alphabet, influenced by old and new letterforms, let all of this flow into contemporary design. Knowing the origins, we play and add some freshness & fancyness to create our own modern illumination.
