I've become increasingly drawn to decorative patterns, mainly from historical manuscripts but from more contemporary sources too. This is a gilded piece on vellum I'm working on, my interpretation of an illuminated border fragment by Attavante from a missal of Pope Leo X (Florence, 1513-1521).

600 years. 180 spectacular treasures. A once-in-a-generation exhibition
Treasures from the British Library’s own collection, including the beautifully illuminated Lindisfarne Gospels, Beowulf and Bede's Ecclesiastical History, sit alongside stunning finds from Sutton Hoo and the Staffordshire Hoard. The world-famous Domesday Book offers its unrivalled depiction of the landscape of late Anglo-Saxon England while Codex Amiatinus, a giant Northumbrian Bible taken to Italy in 716, returns to England for the first time in 1300 years.
