The first letter or word on a page or in a chapter was often “rubricated,” or outlined in red ink. In fancier manuscripts, these letters were drawn with fancy shapes and designs that represented life, death, love, and other elements of the human experience. The most famous example of the beautiful art of illuminated manuscripts is The Book of Kells, an Irish masterpiece done in about the year 800. The book, currently on display in a museum in Dublin, Ireland, contains the four gospels of the Bible, each decorated with much colorful ornamentation.

In between the Old and New Testaments in these old Bibles were usually a few pages to record births, marriages, and deaths of the family that owned the Bible. The examples shown here are signed by an artist named John Kruse. There are flowery decorations and an angel’s head drawn around some of the lettering. The marriage record and the first three birth records were done by Kruse, but it appears as though someone else did the bottom two records. The person drew in red ink and tried to copy Kruse’s style, but did not possess quite as fine a talent.
