Welcome to my blog Scribe Scribbling, an attempt by me, Ian the Green, to share my scribal projects and research with the world. My blog is focused toward the beginner and advanced scribes. While I do show my work here, I do so with an attempt at using them as a teaching object. I also have lessons here on making ink, dissecting period scripts, how to analyze calligraphy, your own and others. Take a look around and see what there is here.
I greatly appreciate the readers of my blog and I very much welcome your comments and questions. While you’re here please click on the rating you feel each post and page deserve.
I now have an ETSY store where you can purchase some of the items I discuss making here on this blog and some items that aren’t on here at all.
I love exploring the medieval methods, materials, tools and techniques used by scribes to make the the written word come alive. I attempt to recreate medieval and renaissance manuscript paleography so I explore and learn about the tools and materials that would have been used in pre-17th century Europe.
My scribal and scribal related 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 take some time to check it out.
