Re: [BKARTS] Completed the Gospel of Saint Mark Hand Written and Illuminated



James,

Many of books from that period were decorated by the impression of a
specially made wood-cut. The entire board was done with each impression.

I'm sure there is much available information on this method of decoration for
books.
