Middle Ages doesn’t refer to my age, as I guess I’m considered elderly by today’s standards. I certainly don’t feel it!! It seems that SUNDAY POSTCARD ART (sundaypostcardart.wordpress.com) has requested art with a Middle Ages or medieval theme. Since I’m in the process of creating a Middle Ages-themed deck of cards, this fits right into my plans. Here are two of what will be a 52 card deck of giant cards.
In the Middle Ages, manuscripts were either illuminated or plain. An illuminated manuscript is one in which the text is supplemented with such decoration as initials, borders and miniature illustrations. My deck of cards is inspired by the illuminated manuscripts. They were magnificent works of art…like these…
That’s it…short and sweet.
Big hugs until next posting,
