Project 3

A New Artistic Design Based on the Illuminated Manuscripts: an Album “Queen Jadwiga

One of the general objectives of the project is to increase an interest in both historical and artistic literature. The historical book not only needs to include the information about the historical events but also needs to refer in some way to the past. A handwritten book with pictures and decorations painted or drawn in bright colors was a major form of artistic expression at medieval times. These handwritten books are called illuminated manuscripts.

The aims of this project are: to elaborate the new artistic method of illustration of the printed book, to introduce a new technique of the artistic designing of the book, to investigate interplay between text and illustration in the book and to increase an interest in both historical and artistic literature.

 

The first version of the book was issued on the Queen Jadwiga Day (8 June 2005) . This book can be ordered from the QJF Kiosk.
