I've started to copy a page from the Macdurnan gospels - you can see my scan of the original here. (the image is 370 kb)
Now I have two questions and I would love to get your help.
1) Do you think the pink areas were pink originally, or is that tinted gesso, so I should use gold on those parts?
2) What font should I use? I don't think I can copy the font used in the original. The manuscript is from late ninth century Ireland, so is Uncial an acceptable compromise?
