Celtic & Early Medieval
I am in awe of the medieval scribes, writing away year after year in their scriptoria, without the benefit of central heating, double glazed windows, the electric light and anti-inflammatories/ wrist supports/ physiotherapy!!
As one medieval scribe put it (in the margins of one manuscript) "Oh my hand". Oh my goodness yes.
These are some of my works, featuring handmade egg tempera, gold leaf and written using a hand cut quill pen.
And yes, my hand hurts.
