An  allusional  device  where  a  design  or  picture  takes  place  of  a  word  or  part  of  word. Of ten  used  in  the  middle  ages  for  surnames  or  professions.


ROSE  WINDOW

TYMPANUM

The  name  given  to  rounded windows  of ten  used  in  churces   with  gothic  architecture. They  recieved  the  name  from   their  obvious  rose  shape.

A  tympanum  is  a  decorative  piece  placed  over  an  entrance. It  is  normally  semi-circle  or  triangular  cnsisting  of  carved  images and  sometimes  words.

and  assymetirical  designs.

The  larger  figures  obviously being  more  important  than  the smaller  ones.


TRADEMARK

DROP  CAP A  Drop  Cap  is  where  the  first  letter  of  a  paragraph  is  enlarged  but  kept  flush  with  the  paragraph indenting  many  lines  below  it  to  keep  everything  even.

A  symbol  or  word  that  is  registered  as  a  representation  for  that  company. It  is  supposed  to  differentiate  the  difference  between  products  from  two  seperate  companies. There  are  many  guitars  shaped  like  Fenders,  but  their  trademark  is  what  lets  you  know  it  is  a  Fender.

they  are  comrehended.

A  cursive  tupeface  started  with  calligraphy  and  usually  slants  to  the  right.

Stained  glass  got  its  color  from  metallic  salts used  during  manufacturing, Usually  stained  glass  is  exclusively  windows  of churches  and  other  buildings,  but  artists  are starting  to  breakout  of  that  mold.


PRINTER’S  MARKS

INTAGLIO

Printer’s  marks  were  essentially  trade  marks  of  the  time  period.  Printers  used  them  to   put  their  little  mark  on  their  piece  of  work.  The  first  printer’s  mark  was  on  The  Bible   made  by  Fust  and  Schoffer.

A  group  of  printmaking  techniques  where  you  cut  into  a  surface  known  as  a  plate cover  it  with  ink  and  then  print  with  it.  People  will  of ten  use  metal,  but  many  other  materials such  as  wood  and  various  stones  have  been  used.


INTERLACES

LIGATURES

Interlaces  are  where  portions  of  the artwork  overlap  by  seeming  to  be braided  or  knotted  together. Of ten  times  it  is  useed  to  fill  space.

Ligatures  are  where  pieces  or  adjacent  letters  are  in  direct  contact  with  each  other. It  happens  more  of ten  than  many  people  realize,  mainly  because  it  is  not  something  we  are taught  to  pay  attention  to.


Moveable  Type

Pointed  Arches

Movable  type  is  a  tupe  of  printing  that   uses  different  components  to  recreate letters  and  punctuations  for  documents. The  first  moveable  tupe  was  created in  China.

A  pointed  arch  was  exactly  that,  a  pointed  arch.  It  allowed  for  the  architects  to  lif t  them  higher  due  to  where  the  support of  the  building  was  sitting  compared  to  Romanesque  rounded  arches.
