Jeanette's historical journey

My second alphabet will be developed in reference to historical documents. These four letters are based on those found in the Book of Kells, from circa 800 AD. The letters are worked in watercolour onto rag paper, and I think they lose some of their character by not being in a series.

I think they are looking great Jeanette - lovely gentle washes and good letter shapes!

Alors ils se retrouveront à la fin de la série pour "prendre" leur présence. Cependant, ce sont de belles lettres.
