Medieval Invite Illumination by dashinvaine Medieval Invite Illumination by dashinvaine
Design for the illuminated capital and marginalia of a medieval-manuscript style wedding invitation. Commissioned piece. The client was supplied with the design on a clear background which they will print on parchment-paper having added the text (not as seen here)

This is literally one of the coolest things I have ever seen on the Internet. My inner history nerd is having a fangirl moment.

I would like to commission something similar. Format would be 11X17 landscapeThe Large Initial Letter to be the Letter E with knights in the center (I can email you a picture). I will also email coats of arms for the piece. Would also like something similar with the Initial Letter being A again I can email coats of arms for inclusion. You can email me directly at herikwhite at gmail.com to discuss details and pricing and timelines.

Looks like taken from Mackelsfield pasuter with it's funny grotesques. Anyways's a marvelous piece of which beauty we, unfortunately, can't see to the fullest. That would take an web pluguin for images to simulate gold shining.
