Scriptorium – some new blank scrolls… :D

2017-02 - Racaire - scriptorium - blank - scroll - Argent shield - Kingdom of Meridies - SCA - calligraphy - Batarde - blank scrollsAnd here are two new blank scrolls which I finished while preparing for the calligraphy on the “Rose Tournament” scroll for the winner of the rose tourney at Gulf Wars.

At the left you can see a finished blank scroll for the “Order of the Argent Shield“. The artisan who made the lovely illumination at the bottom of the scroll unfortunately forgot to provide a name on the back. However, I believe that the illumination can be attributed to Isabella de Boyce. It’s quite a pleasure to see how nice my Batarde/Bastarda hand works with the illumination at the bottom. 🙂

…and this brings us right to the next scroll which I just finished – a blank scroll for the “Order of the Argent Comet“. Unfortunately a name for the artisan is again not provided at the back but I highly assume that it was done by Isabella de Boyce.

I simply added the calligraphy as well as a the “head of the comet” at the bottom part because a scroll for the argent comet really needs a comet somewhere… 😉

I hope you enjoyed the calligraphy for my most recent scroll blanks. I have some more progress concerning the “Rose Tournament” scroll which I will show you in my next posting. Stay tuned my friends… 😀
Best regards Racaire
