American, 2001. Illuminated document granting an award to "Chen" and prepared with the signature block of the "King and Queen of the Middle." Illumination based on English, 16th century documentary practice. Although the calligraphy is a bit off, the text is sufficently clear to allow the writing to read.
Copyright 2001, Elise C. Boucher. In Private Collection. This document is an example of what can be done quickly and still be nice and based on period practice.
