Testimonials

Black Letter, in producing the Mappa Mundi and the Henry II charters for Dover Castle, have shown themselves to be true masters of calligraphy and illumination, with an innate feeling for mediaeval culture coupled with real artistic creative power of their own. About the Mappa, there is a real feeling that it is an authentic work of art, not a copy or a pastiche. We have been very impressed by their artistry and workmanship, and also by their professionalism and reliability. We could not be happier with the results.
Dr Steven Brindle, English Heritage.

I’ve had my ‘Henry’ for five years now and I look at it every day. It’s a beautiful thing.

The commission arrived safe and sound. I am so pleased with it I cant wait to see my fiances face when he sees it on the morning of the wedding - he has no idea i have had it done.

I have received the commission and thrilled to bits with the quality of your work. I am sure it will be a great surprise for my wife on her special day. Thank you for the advice and support in creating this wonderful work of art for me, I will certainly recommend you to friends.

The work has just been delivered and what can I say? It is even more beautiful than the scan - you are absolutely right that the gold leaf does not do itself justice on the scan. I am aware I keep saying beautiful but that is what it is and I could not be happier or more thrilled with the finished piece.
A Kane

Both my wife and I love the piece. Thanks you so much for making it look really great. It really did the trick for our first anniversary - made her cry.
