This presentation gives student expectations and an brief overview of calligraphy as a high art form in other cultures. Perhaps if we can understand this we might understand the people better. I believe an appreciation of art is helpful in appreciating others in general. This presentation also has practice screens for Italic, Old English, and Modified Old English letterforms.

Calligraphy Stack

  1. 6. The Lindisfarne Gospels is one of the world's masterpieces of manuscript painting. It is a piece of transition from the world of Greco-Roman antiquity into the Middle Ages. A richly decorated book, the Lindisfarne Gospels was created in the early eighth century CE for ceremonial use at the monastery of Lindisfarne in the northeast of England. The manuscript's main text, which was written out by a single scribe, is a Latin version of the Four Gospels known as Saint Jerome's Vulgate. The Gospels contains 15 pages of complex patterns and intertwined with fanciful birds and animals. At the start of each of the Gospels is an illustration of its author with his symbol, and throughout the text pages of the manuscript are numerous decorated initials.
