I've done Isabella Breviary before, but I've never actually attempted the hand that went with it until now. Unfortunately, my nib started sputtering in the second column so I had finally to change it or risk the entire scroll. Still, I don't think it turned out that badly. The picture was taken before the oakgall ink had really blackened.
Violets stand for fidelity (witness Ophelia's flower speech), so I thought they were appropriate for a peerage scroll. They are also mentioned in the text. I forget exactly which text I amended for this scroll.
