A Coronation Book For Elizabeth I

As a follow-up to my Coronation Book For Queen Anne Boleyn, I am currently working on one for her daughter Elizabeth's crowning in 1559. Like the previous book, this is being done in ink, watercolor, gold and silver pigments, and raised gold leaf on calfskin vellum.

The transcribed text is from The Passage of our most drad Soveraigne Lady Quene Elyzabeth, printed by Richard Tottill in January 1559, combined with sections from Robert Fabyan's Concordance of Histories (1559).

Here's a preview:
