This presentation will take you step by step through artist Diane von Arx’s journey of planning, designing and completing a Modern Manuscript, using traditional tools and techniques. The Book of Honor, is the eighth and companion volume to the 7 volume Saint John’s Bible which was commissioned by Saint John’s Abbey and University in Central Minnesota in 1998. The entire process of creating this tome, 72 oversize pages, over 60 full color illuminations on calfskin vellum, hand lettered with quills and stick ink, took over 5 years to complete.
A small reception will be held afterwards. You are welcome to join us for a drink and an informal get together.
