Leaves of Gold


Illuminated manuscripts are hand-produced books that include drawn, painted, and gilded decoration on pages made of vellum, a specially prepared and polished animal skin. The simplest manuscripts are adorned with calligraphic penwork dividing one paragraph of text from another. More lavish examples are embellished with historiated initials, enlarged and colorful letters that contain tiny representations of figures or biblical scenes.

The brilliant pictures that illustrate and accompany the texts in a manuscript are called miniatures, not only because they are small, but because the Latin word miniare (to color with red lead) has been used since the Middle Ages to describe these illustrations. The miniatures seen here are painted in luminous colors and often have gold highlights or backgrounds that shimmer in the light.

Leaves of Gold - illuminated manuscripts from Philadelphia libraries.
