Scribe Scribbling is an attempt by me, Ian the Green, to share what I am doing in the scribal world with others. Another resource I provide is the Scribal Resources for Scadians site. I greatly appreciate comments and questions and while you’re here please click on the rating you feel each post and page deserve.
The background you are seeing is a picture I took of “Med Ren 29″ a book of hours written in central France between 1450 and 1499
I am involved in many activities in the SCA. This blog is dedicated to my scribal arts. I love exploring the medieval methods, materials and techniques used by scribes to make the the written word come alive on the pages of manuscripts. I am a calligrapher which means to me that I want to learn about the tools and materials that would have been used in the time period I study. This way my writing will be more authentic to their writing.
My scribal activities include:
~ Illumination (Gilding)
~ Parchment making
~ Ink making
~ Pigment making
~ Quill and reed pen making
~ Research,research, research
I hope that you enjoy my blog and find it useful as well.
I also run the Scribal Resources for Scadians web page
