About This Project

This page was done for the television show “Charmed.” The art director wanted a title page for their Book of Shadows. I modeled it after many mediaeval books and how they look. With their decorated capital letters and blackletter lowercase. I used gold gouache instead of real gold since it was for t.v. They were very pleased with the results and they filmed it during the entire run of the series. The paper was a fake parchment that was a tan color. I did the work on a single page and they tipped it into book. They brought the whole book to me in the first place before anything was in it and I cut a few pages out for future use. Which luckily I was able to make more pages of handwriting and text.
