Description

Made to order Book of Kells style illuminated medieval Celtic manuscript letter.

Please note that the two examples above are not for sale, but all of the letters are based on a similar template with variation in the knots and patterns.

ORDERING:
To choose the animal, please refer to the rough sketches of generic versions of the animals that don't appear in the examples above. These are based on images in the Book of Kells, a beautifully illuminated medieval Celtic manuscript from about 800AD. If you choose no animal, there will be more other decorations.

To ensure you are happy with the image, I will send pictures of the pencil sketches for your approval before adding the ink.

Each letter is unique and carefully hand drawn with calligraphy ink on 9x12in (23x30.5cm) 90lb Watercolour paper. The letters are about 7.5in (20cm) tall.

CARE INSTRUCTIONS:
If framing, it is recommended to use a frame with UV protective glass to avoid the ink fading.

SHIPPING AND PACKAGING
Shipping is by Canada Post
Canada: expedited parcel
United States: tracked packet
International: Small Packet Air. Please note that this is without tracking internationally. Tracking options and prices vary significantly from country to country. If you would like tracking for an international destination, please contact me before ordering to discuss your options.

I am always happy to discuss alternative shipping options, but please contact me before ordering so I can make that option available to you.

Images will be reinforced by cardboard on both sides and shipped in a waterproof bubble envelope for protection.

INFORMATION FOR INTERNATIONAL BUYERS:
Please note that you are responsible for duties/taxes incurred at the border. Contact me if you would like an estimate.

FAQs

I take extra care to ensure that items are not damaged in transit. Cards and other small items will always be shipped in water resistant envelopes. Flexible paper items will always be reinforced with cardboard, and paintings are always protected with bubble wrap.

Despite these precautions, there is never any guarantee that there will be no possibility of damage in the shipping process. If you receive your item damaged, please take photos of the damaged item as you received it in its packaging, as well as of any details on the item and contact me so that the issue can be properly dealt with.
I really enjoy doing custom and personalized orders because it is very motivating to be painting things that are meaningful to you.

If you send me a message or click the "request a custom order" button, there is no commitment until we have agreed on the details of the order. When an order is agreed-upon, I will create a custom listing just for you: once it is paid, I start painting.

Please provide photograph(s) if you have something specific in mind.

Yes! I am open to discussing shipping upgrades. However, since price changes will vary by region, please send me a conversation before ordering the item and I will add a temporary shipping upgrade to the item that is personalized to you and your location.
Please note that for international orders, there may not be a next-day option.

When it comes to custom pieces with the 1-2 week processing time, this is also variable depending on my schedule. Often, I can get your item done in a few days, so if you have a time constraint, don't hesitate to get in touch with me to see if it is possible!
Unfortunately, shipping from Canada is expensive. I do what I can to reduce costs by repurposing packaging materials (which is also environmentally friendly!) and buying things in bulk.

Larger items are quite expensive to ship internationally by air. If you would like to cut costs and don't mind waiting up to 3 months for your item, you may want to consider surface shipping. Please contact me before ordering.
