I cannot imagine the uncounted hours of effort that went into making such a library of treasures. Wonderful works, Merwenna—among the best contemporary manuscript work I've seen here.

Thanks. I'm still quite new to calligraphy, gilding, and miniature illustration. I hope a bit of inspiration and practice will help sort me out.

Thank you!  I learned the basics when I joined a medieval reenactment group (yeah, I know -  nerrrrd).  

www.sca.org/    <--- Society for Creative Anachronism, aka awesome nerdery.

From there, I met some very, VERY talented people who showed me what to look at in a manuscript source in order to make my art more period-appropriate, no matter the subject... even Batman, etc.  Haha. ^_^

Sweet, I now have a website for an amalgamation of nerdery.  
Is it open to all cultures? I just don't see myself "fitting in" if I ever join. 
I'm wondering, unless it's optional, if you have to ask to learn the basics.

We take all the nerds!  The periods focused on are between 600 and 1600CE, but from pretty much anywhere in the world during that time span.
