5.0 out of 5 stars Gorgeous
An absolutely gorgeous collection of illuminated initials, arranged alphabetically. Lots of styles, from very ornamented to relatively plain. Some initials take up the whole page. Absolutely the kind of book I was hoping it would be. If you like illuminations its a great little book.

2.0 out of 5 stars Quite disappointing
I've received this book today and I was pretty excited to use it immediately.
Unfortunately it has proved to be quite a disappointment: print quality is quite low so many details (and some letters are indeed very detailed)are blurred. Some letters are so small to be almost unusable, enlarging them would make them appear even duller. Others are too religious oriented...

This book has proven to be of great value as a reference book when creating monograms with decorated letters.

Unfortunately it has proved to be quite a disappointment: print quality is quite low so many details (and some letters are indeed very detailed)are blurred. Some letters are so small to be almost unusable, enlarging them would make them appear even duller. Others are too religious oriented and wouldn't be useful other than for weddings or other religious matters.
Definitely not worth the expense. Returned immediately.
