I haz a new toy...
This was a gracious and totally unexpected gift from Lord Matthew Baker.
I'd admired his lady's writing slope at a previous event, and he presented me my own at Raglan.
It has room for an inkhorn, and holes for a three pens. You can see the holes at the top of the slope, close to my bottle of oakgall ink.
I've now put it to good use on a couple of short pieces, that I can put online sometime after next week.
Does anyone else have any clever ideas for keeping books up close where you can copy from them? I've propped two books up on the windowsill here, but more secure suggestions are welcome!
