Blanks-That's what I've been doing

 Jacob Kobel woodcut- for the challenge at Midrealm 12th night. 

This is the header for Harley 2803 f. 278.  Worms Bible Germany (Frankenthal, near Worms, Middle Rhineland) 2nd or 3rd quarter of the 12th century, probably c. 1148.  This is the Initail beginning the book of Habakkuk.  Also for the challenge at Midrealm 12th night. 

They won me a prize for best scroll blank submitted with a source between the years 1100 and 1200.  Dame Jocelyn of Lutterworths Laurel Challenge Prize.  :D


  1. Congrats on winning the challenge! The second scroll is particularly nice, even compared to your usual work.

  2. Your work is lovely, but I particularly love the first one in black and white. Very pretty.
