Text and Design
Using letters, flowers, and geometric motifs, monks in secluded monasteries decorated pages of Scripture and other writings with infinite detail.
Some pages of these manuscripts have figures and narrative decoration while others are simply words with no illustrations.
Amid the abstract and geometric art of the time, the monks kept figurative drawing and painting alive by creating
miniatures on small pages.
