header image

My latest header image has been up for a couple of days so I thought I should share the rest of the page it came from. Fantastically detailed lettering and frame. I will summarise some details for it as soon as I remember to bring the book back from the office.
Page 2 coming soon.

Update: The letterforms are from St Cuthbert's Gospels and were written by Aedrith, Bishop of Lindisfarm. They decorated the opening pages and marked the beginnings of new paragraphs. The arch is also taken from the same manuscript and is ornamented with Anglo-Saxon decoration.
