Arte of the Booke

NancyHulanArteOfTheBooke.jpg

Nancy Hulan is an artist specializing in medieval illumination, calligraphy, bookbinding, and book arts.

Centuries ago, books were made by hand. Parchment was scraped and pounced, ink gracefully flowed through quills to the page, paints and gold leaf were applied with the utmost care, leather-covered wood boards were decorated with stamps of fantastical designs, and bindings could be studded with gemstones or swathed in sumptuous silk velvet. Books were valued not only for the information they conveyed but also for their material physicality as status symbols, luxury items, and works of art.
