I’m new to the Guild. My 9-5 is as a medical illustrator, but my real passion is book illumination.
Below are sample pages of a recent project – a miniature version of the High Mass missal used at the Anglo-Catholic church where I’m an acolyte/thurifer/crucifer. The book (measuring 4cm x 5cm) was done on calfskin vellum in watercolor and ink, with raised gold and silver leaf. The binding is of black leather, with a citrine cabuchon set onto the Cross on the cover.
I hope to do a Stations of the Cross or a Penitential Psalms illuminated book next.
