Stefana dei Medici, Award of Arms Scroll
Calligraphy and Illumination by Eliška z Jihlavy
by Eliška z Jihlavy
"Based on the Visconti Hours, pergamenata with higgins
black magic, gold leaf and goauche.
My sister Stefana actually picked out the page for me to use, which has oak trees wound round with grape vines. I converted the trees to holly, as her device is made up of holly leaves, and the grape vines became morning glories, which have especial significance to her. The white perg gave it an especially clean and crisp look, very suited to Steffie." -- Eliška z Jihlavy
