In Medieval manuscripts; Calligraphy is the pretty letters and Illumination is the pretty pictures.

In court the award scrolls that are given out are assigned weeks before the event by a signet to scribes who create the calligraphy and/or illumination for the award. So in addition to whatever recognition or rank the award conveys, the recpient also gets a, frequently beautiful, work of art to commemorate the award.

Calligraphy and Illumination are also practiced as arts outside of courts.
