Here are the first letters of my 2014 free alphabet.
They are from the first page of a manuscript known as the Gelase ´s Sacramentary, dated 8th century and kept in the Vaticana Library. Since only a few letters are present in this page, I'll have to imagine the missing ones.
Every letters are designed with fish and birds. The colors used are those identified in the manuscript : minium, malachite, lead yellow, lapis and vermillon.
It will be a great fun to write some words with them by the end of the year !
