Illuminated Manuscripts
Jun 10, 2013

I' know there is 'metalic' photo paper. I'm working with Illustrator and vector objects related to something called the "Book of Kells'. This ancient manuscript, actually a bible, has illuminated portions in it. This was done by hand using special inks, gold leaf etc. I want to create an 'illuninated' effect for the objects I am working with and am trying to locate a 'system' that will let me do this. My project has both text and objects and I was wondering if anyone knew of system would replicate the 'illuminated' effect. The final product would be printed from a digital file on parchment type paper or any media that would approximate parchment paper. Cost is also a factor. I know digital photo people are often at the cutting edge so any suggestions other than sending me to a monastery with a case of candles would be greatly appreciated.
