  10. ILT: Pure Gold

    Both the Roman Pliny (ca. 61–113) and the Greek historian, Herodotus (ca. 484–425 BC), mention gilding; the latter writing that the Egyptians gilded wood and metal. It has been used in decorating ceramics, in art, and at least from the fifth century in the production of illuminated manuscripts, reaching its peak in the especially exquisite illuminated Books of Hours produced from the thirteenth century. Although the term “illuminated manuscript” is often used to describe all decorated manuscripts, strictly speaking, it refers to those ornamented with gold and silver. The gold reflects light and therefore literally illuminates the page. From the late fifteenth century, printed illustrations (though still most often hand-colored) replace the illuminated manuscript.

  15. Small Typography for Print

    Hi People! I am working on a personal project: A World History Timeline. It will be for printing.  For this purpose, I am looking for fonts that are specially suited for good legibility in small sizes.  Serif, and Sans-Serif. They don't have to belong to the same family.  Any suggestions would be much appreciated.
