The drawings of borders, illuminated initials, letters, panels and recorative elements contained in this volume are inspired by a few Framed Illuminated Capital Letters I had available from a library. I had just five images to start with and obviously five letters: D, J, P, Q and S. Each of them had a different set of colors; those sets were coordinating with each other. I started drawing and I created this collection of borders, letters, illuminated Capitals and small objects. They are available in the five sets of colors. The small objects are extracted from the borders of the illuminated capitals, they are really useful to decorate the page, create custom borders and in general complement the design. This is a very large collection that permits the creation of unique pages, but also the creation of structured multi-pages documents and coordinated sets.
No special skill is required to use the images as clip art in word processing documents, to create letters, cards, invitations, posters, etc.
Each decorative image and element is meticulously hand-drawn. Many advanced designers will find our vector file versions with the following desirable feature: preserved, original hierarchies and groupings to facilitate modifications and enable the extraction of unique elements. Though resolution-independent vector formats insure high-quality reproduction at any size and allow complete latitude for pre-production modifications, our CD collections also include common pixel-based file formats of each graphic and a vector format supported by Office applications for desktop publication.
