What this is about...

A little background & explanation for any who stumble on this blog:

I'm going to be writing about my experience as a calligrapher and scribe in the SCA (Society for Creative Anachronism). The SCA is a group where we learn about medieval & renaissance history through recreation of the clothing, activities, arts & crafts of that time period.

In my scribal works, I'm attempting to recreate the appearance of pages from medieval manuscripts & legal documents. Eventually, I hope to attempt at least one project using truly medieval tools and materials.

Most of my projects are done to be given out to other members of the SCA in recognition of their participation and hard work.

For more information about the SCA:
