Manu Scripta et IlluminataMy exhibition Ä¢Manu Scripta et IlluminataÄ£ shows my works from the late 80s and early 90s (handwritten books, and the more recent liturgical texsts in Latin (songs of praise, missal texsts and daily prayers)). At the seminar I will look at the history of calligraphy and its development from the early Middle Ages to the baroque. I will introduce different styles of writing, initcials, ornaments, book illumination. Also tools, materials, techniques. As a practical task we will learn how to write one of the simplest and the most wide-spread gothic script.
I have studied design and interior design at the Tallinn Art University and also at the Villu Toots school of calligraphy. I have been active in the fields of graphic design, interior design, town planning and teaching art. At the moment I work as a restorer but in free time I paint, do calligraphy and I have lately also freed my hand at sculpture.
