Calligraphy and Illumination, by Patricia Lovett,  2000

Very nice book.  Particularly nice is the historical information.  Introduction thd calligraphy and "historical alphabets" are booth good, but similar intros can be found elsewhere.  Where this book excels are the 20+ pages devoted to gilding and the 90 pages devoted to the history of heraldry.    There are also nice sections on curing and cutting quills and "working to comission."  A lot to read here.
