Illuminated Proverbs

Hand-drawn A1 posters inspired by 
Illuminated Manuscripts

Studying the Illuminated Manuscripts at the British Library, I was inspired by the way that the craftsmanship, materials and time add beauty, value and honour to the text.

Taking these key aspects forward, I used quotes of wisdom from the Book of Proverbs in the Bible to create a series of A1 posters, combining the hand-drawn, typographic and ornamental elements I had seen. The posters are entirely illustrated by hand using metallic and coloured pens.
