ILLUMINATED LETTER: CONTEMPORARY COUNTER PART
An illumination is an embellishment, or additional decoration that enhances the pages of a written, or manuscript page. The decorated pages made it easy for missionaries to find the beginning of a particular section.
After understanding the history of the illumniated letter you will be explore the contemporary counterpart. Create a series (3) of illuminated letters based on the visual language of an artist(s), designer(s), architect(s) of your choosing.
I learned about the art behind illuminated lettering as well as the history. I also learned how challenging it can be to work with a form as simple as a single letter....it was very fun though! Trying to match the artist's style without completely copying him/her was challenging but easily accomplished, and i just think the project itself was just ALOT of fun!!
