You are sensitive to the beauty of roman or
You would like to get yourself
medieval style illumination.
Originals are rare and extremely expensive
(you must generally allow from 10.000 to 100.000 Euros
for a nice miniature).
I propose to create, adapt or reproduce miniatures
and other kinds of illuminations according to medieval
standards: goat or sheep parchment, gum arabic and egg
tempera, 23½ carats gold leaf gilding on gum ammoniac or burnished
on a gesso ground, according to style.
value of an illumination depends on the quality of
materials (parchment, gold, semiprecious stone pigments
or not...) and on labour time conditionned by the style of work,
the richness of details and the quality of finishing.
A nice work takes
about 40 to 80 hours to complete.
You fell in love with a particular illumination or
have a personnal idea in mind...
