I became interested in medieval illumination and calligraphy several years ago while at an event held by the Society of Creative Anachronism (SCA), a medieval reenactment group. When I joined the SCA in 2008, I was originally very interested in archery, but I started to see the incredible works created by my peers that were based on illuminated manuscripts. I began researching the art and finally a friend, and fellow artist, inspired me to create my own piece. Although it proved to be an extremely tedious process, I really fell in love with illuminated manuscripts. I started this blog to record my progress as I continue to research more techniques and learn the history behind manuscripts of different time periods.
