THIS PAGE IS TO PRESENT manuscripts written with dip pen (with metallic nib) and acrylic ink on high-quality parchment-like paper. They are written in Greek minuscule script (perlschrift) that has predominated in the late Byzantine era. In modern Greek writing, the lower case letters are based on the tradition of minuscule handwriting. Creating a manuscript is every time a real challenge for me. It’s really magic how the script itself leads my hand to accord the letters together.


                                  

THE REASON I KEEP ON WORKING on manuscripts is the unique experience of making something entirely handmade. The decoration is created line-to-line, dot-to-dot, until it becomes a title, a motif or a whole picture. Furthermore, the readings reveal each time their own world. So if someone considers that a great number of the most important essays on philosophy, history, art and sciences were taught and brought through by manuscripts written in Greek language (a language that is being spoken ceaselessly for the last 2.500 years), it becomes obvious why I have been so much attracted to this pursuit.


                                  

MY TRUE HOPE IS that you would share the feeling I have writing a manuscript when you read it. Even if you do not understand Greek, even if it’s difficult for you to follow the script, I’m sure that the letters and the words will drag you to their own world; inner rhythm, intense pictures, precious meanings. Nevertheless, for better understanding, I always quote the original text and the translated one in English or in your mother tongue, whenever possible.
