(From the French for "border"), the specially designed frame of a text or miniature page. The frame consists of ornaments, plants, or figures (see Drollery). The border is made up of tendrils coming from initials during the transition from Romanesque to Gothic.
We have been running a specialist store for facsimiles for over 10 years in Regensburg's Old Town, just opposite the "Schottenportal" of the Romanesque Scots Monastery of St. Jacob at Jakobstraße 6.
