Throwback Thursday - Illuminated Initial

 


Between today and tomorrow, I'm teaching 4 more classes of middle schoolers illuminated initials. I came across one of the first illuminated initials I made.

This was done for an online group Christmas card exchange. From 1995 or 1996, "Angels we have heard online" Is that a groan I hear?

  2. I remember discovering illuminated manuscripts. The joys of reading encyclopedias for fun :) I'd've loved your classes.

  9. I´ve never heard of that! And I have to admit... first time at the PC was 2000. It shut down, it was Ingo´s and Ingo was at work. I really thought I´d "broken" it, did I have a shitty day! LOL!
