|Notes (from “The Visual Manuscripts of August Highland,” by Harry Polkinhorn): "‘Text’ derives from the Latin ‘texere,’ to weave. The columns and rows of letters and words form a textured field of meaning in the creation of a uniquely human cultural object, just as the warp and woof threads of a textile form a uniquely human object for the enhancement of our physical life. Highland's work, for all its technical innovation, maintains many links with ancient cultures. Illuminated manuscripts were hand-painted texts suffused with the beauty of form and color as translated into the physical world by the human hand, which forms a prototype context for Highland's contemporary illuminations."
