       “Wisdom”  text is compressed from that found in Ecclesiasticus.

One font for the ‘body’ of the quote, plus added capitals (each significantly modified) completes the quotation begun with a magnificent illuminated ‘W’ (borrowed/modified from an antique document.) While time-consuming, the resulting product is most satisfying.

“We Awaken...”A prayer from Symeon, the New Theologian, is set out in one font, with capitals sprinkled throughout in dramatically different size & color. Spaces between the lines serve to acknowledge the realization process described in the words. By placing the illuminated capital (taken from an ancient manuscript, beefed-up in color and clarity) in an unexpected location, the turning-point of the petition is clearly emphasized.
