Scribal Resources FYI

I'm running a roundtable at Johnson College tomorrow, and thought I'd post some good scribal links here for folks to reference. I'll come back and add any great, new links I hear about.

The Morgan Library includes an *amazing* collection of high-resolution images from medieval manuscripts. You can look images up by era, provenance, or subject. Wow, wow, wow.

Gutenburg School for Scribes An excellent intro to illumination work, with step by step instructions for the absolute beginner.

Kingdom of Atlantia Scribal Arts is a lovely collection of links to era-specific exemplars, SCA exemplars, and articles on both period tecniques and their application in the SCA. Lots to digest!
