Borders and lettering clip art vector eps

Dedicated to Domenico Bandini and his manuscript Fons Memorabilium Universi; one of the most beautiful illuminated books middle ages. This collection includes illuminated borders, decorative elements and flourishes, illuminated caps, dressed illuminated caps and small caps; it is our best collection of Medieval and Renaissance engagement and wedding decorative invitation graphics; a complete set of images to create illuminated manuscript illustrations. Probably the finest clipart of decorative illustrations from old books includes illuminated capital letters, artistic decorative borders and motifs simulating the look of gold leaf from an Italian Manuscript. Royalty free images available as instant download in EPS and WMF formats.


The Illuminated Manuscripts Renaissance Invitation

The authentic look of an illuminated Middle Age or Renaissance invitation can be created using one of the illuminated manuscript border and the hand drawn medieval capital letters. A complete illuminated alphabet in the form of clip art capitals is included in two styles: illuminated capital letters and illuminated dressed capital letters which are adorned with decorative elements and flourishes; the two alphabets are complete and include all the majuscule letters. Adding to the page some of the decorative elements included in this collection will complete the page, to complete the project choose the right font; many appropriate fonts are already installed in most computers, if not they can be freely downloaded from the net, a search for free fonts will bring millions of results. The final touch is to print the page on parchment paper (available at any office supply) or to set in the background one of our images of parchment or books background that are included in the instant download. Personally I prefer to use the old book decorative page background or the photographic reproductions of parchment included in the collection because they have a more authentic look than the commercial parchment paper. Medium or heavy weight photo quality matte paper should be used.
