- Illuminated Letters
- 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 we explored the contemporary counterpart. Then created a series of illuminated letters based on the visual language of an artist(s), designer(s), architect(s) of our choosing.
