Gothic letters as painted by monks in to medieval bibles

These are some royalty free images of Gothic letters that I thought were very attractive and have decided to share with you for no particular reason, other than a shared interest in this period.

I like the way the woman is reaching out to the man – who is standing on a serf!

Man kneeling on animal which is either tending to – or trying to eat that cub at the bottom

Who is the hirsute kingly figure being attacked by little people?

Two very fond bears? Butterfly, frog and..erm…not sure on the long tailed creature

Man kills prone figure below – dagger in the back of his neck? And eagle bites the arm of the standing figure. I’m confused.

Two knights in combat – whose insignia is on that flag?
