A place for Drachenwald's scribes to hang out, learn, discuss and critique each others work.

Sometimes, scribing is just about book-collecting, really

Lady Ysabella-Maria brought this book to the scribing class at the Mynydd Gwyn revel this weekend. It's a companion volume to David Harris' very useful Calligrapher's bible which I now recommend regularly.

I've now ordered a copy (Abebooks, hurrah) because it has great illustrations of how to paint, which to a novice illuminator is very useful.

this is a really nice book. It's also available from amazon.com/de/co.uk too though the prices vary. ( Probably Abebooks was cheaper)

Lots of very nice images and very helpful info. I use my copy a lot.
