Medieval illuminated manuscripts on display. Come talk to the artist. Randy Asplund is an internationally known book artist and illustrator who is a presenter on how books were written, illustrated and made by hand in the middle ages. Randy makes them exactly the way they were made going back more than a thousand years. See how he makes the pages from animal skins, the inks from wasp nests, the colors from plants, animals, minerals and chemicals, and how he puts the book together between hand carved wooden boards and tooled leather covering with hand made bronze clasps.
