As far back as the 5th century, stretching forward to our times, a handful of rare manuscripts were created on vellum stained purple with brazil wood dye. A piece of this rich, velvet-like surface will be provided to each student to produce a small gem in gilding. Switching historic time zones we will engage in creating modern layouts with contemporary media and design techniques. Thus begins the process of merging ancient, present and future.
