Notecards for Alban Saint Albans

These are a set of note cards I made for Alban St. Alban, as part of the art that I owe him. They were done Aug. 18-19. All of the designs are based on the Visconti Hours, the only book of illumination that I have. I made five, each in a different design. They're presented below in the order that I did them (the first two on Saturday, the second three on Sunday), with the original on the left and my interpretation on the right. I'll note that the scans of the originals are not the greatest; all of the dull brownish/greyish parts really are gold.
