"The longtime scribe to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth's Crown office used age-old calligraphic techniques to create a modern manuscript: egg yolks, gold, silver and platinum in the illuminations; goose quills and hand-ground ink on carefully selected calf-skin vellum for the text. The imagery incorporates symbols as diverse as Navajo basket-weaving patterns to microscopic views of today's viruses, even cosmological images inspired by the Hubble Space telescope. Experience for yourself the story of the most extensive scribal commission in the world since the end of the Middle Ages, a story that has not happened for a long time and probably will never happen again"--Container.
