ARMENIAN ORNAMENTAL SCRIPT
by Armen Kyurkchyan and Hrair Hawk Khatcherian
The centuries have bequeathed to us thousands of ornamented manuscripts - an immense cultural heritage - various in their style, color solutiouns, and image forms. The Armenian masters have transformed the letters of our alphabet from mere symbolic units into miniature masterpieces of ornamental art, which vividly reflect our national, cultural, and spiritual values. The more than 2500 letters presented in this book and the accompanying DVD have been drawn from museums, archives, and libraries across the world.
