Illuminated Manuscript of The Creed was created by Competent
I was wondering if anyone could make and scan an illuminated manuscript of the creed for me.

It doesn't need to be some masterpiece and can be fairly simple in design and black and white, for it is just something I'd like to hang up on my wall for decoration.

If anyone is interested, feel free to post below :)

Thank you!

I'm a little confused...

An illuminated manuscript traditionally can take years to create. There are only a handful of monks who make illuminated manuscript versions of the Bible today because it is a time-consuming art which is falling to the wayside in lieu of digital and contemporary forms of visual art. Yet you also seem to be saying you're not asking for anything terribly fancy, so I'm wondering if an illuminated manuscript is really what you want or if you're just asking for a highly stylized graphic of the Creed that you could put up on your wall?

If I'm in a good headspace, I'll make a mock-up later and show you what I've done. If you like it, I'll give it a polish and make it available for all the Temple to have.

I think Competent is just asking for a fancily decorated version of the Creed, to a similar style as old illuminated texts.

An illuminated manuscript is a manuscript in which the text is supplemented with such decoration as initials, borders (marginalia) and miniature illustrations.

I was thinking more of larger works like the St. John's Bible . An individual page might not take years, but it would be a considerable time commitment. Illuminated manuscripts are more than just text and decoration. There is a specific look that was created, in part by the tools used to create such texts, and the calligraphy alone is an art form which has only marginal popularity in today's world (computers now replicate a facsimile that's considered "good enough" for most people).

I think you're right, but I wanted to ask to be sure because to me there's a world of difference in asking for one over the other and I'd hate to make one when someone wants the other.

Sorry I had been busy and hadn't gotten to reply quicker.

I know traditional one take years and years to do. But I am only asking for one that has a embroider and nice writing.

Even simpler than this:




It could even be done on the computer, I just lack the computer skills. :P

Well, here's what I came up with (click for full-size image)...

Well, apparently I can't do a click-to-view-the-larger-version thing right now (I'm sure I'm making a simple mistake).

Here is the link .
