recently i visited an Exhibition about medieval book art at the bavarian state library in munich.
whenever i am in munich and have an hour to spare i go there.
the entry is free and they often have old books on Display...
i have always been fascinated by the elaborateness of medieval books...
the Colors they used and which endured all those centuries...
exhibited were old bibles and other books from the 15th century.
i especially considered the next one to be very funny:
doesn´t it look like the man is Holding a mobile phone??
i also love the flowers and animals framing the texts,
and because you can find Inspiration everywhere,
i thought i might stitch a medieval Fantasy creature
onto slightly dyed fabric
(actually i think THIS could become VERY addictive;))
now to a quite contrarian style of writing
(i wish i were versed in the art of calligraphy,
but i´m afraid that this is a challenge for another life...)
i had bought quite a variety of Fonts over the last months (at design cuts)
(and i would not say i have an overview of my virtual storage, sigh...)
so for this week i decided to create a mug with some of my newer Fonts...
Fonts used here: twilight script - fontbox jeronimo bouncy - fontbox gojiberries + twilight swashes - brush up too (the whole text with a slight warp)
coffee bean: selfmade brush
