The Bodleian Library has among its collections some very fine examples of illuminated letters in Western manuscripts and fine art books. These twenty-six detachable postcards feature historiated initials decorated with gold leaf from medieval and renaissance manuscripts together with hand-painted examples from early printed books. By turns exquisite, playful and unique, here you'll find a stunning artistic example of every letter in the alphabet.

Presented in a handsome paper binding, these beautiful cards are perfect for you to display or send to friends.
