Each page, printed on one side only, has a double or triple illuminated border in gold and/or silver, surrounding the text, and often with a decorative initial, each of a differing design.

The page is slightly larger than A4 size. Size: A4 (300 x 210mm approx.). Item Type: Fine Art Print. Quantity Available: 1.
