Since posting is light while I’m traveling, I think it’s time to devote another link to Bibliodyssey, that great ongoing compendium of book arts through the ages. This link is to an anonymous early 16th century Spanish parchment manual featuring examples of text decoration.

  1. Absolutely stunning. Thank you. Could you guide to something similar in calygraphy?

  2. Bibliodyssey has a list of links both at the right hand side of the page and at the bottom of the page. You will see a number of links to calligraphy sites and posts listed there.

  3. Thank you.
