Scribal Arts
Description
Most of our scribal source material comes from illuminated books, which we repurpose for scrolls. Learn how the function and structure of different types of books--as well as the constraints imposed by the binding process--affected the layout of art and text, and join in a discussion of how this affects the layout and other choices we make when creating scrolls.
