New Macclesfield Blanks

Yay!  Teenyblanks from the Macclesfield Alphabet book! I just wanted to do the smaller initials so I did them.  One G/O and another D/S.

More blanks

So i finished up a new blank that I passed to Mistress Gwenhwyvar Nocturnal who will write upon it in teensy tiny letters for which she is so well known.  It was amazing to watch her write a pelican promissory right there across the table from me.

The blank is from Johannes Albinus, Excerpta ex Blondi decadibus Naples, 1494 which resides in
Munich, Bavarian State Library, Clm 11324.  It is rather striking. However the photo on my camera corrupted so you will have to make do with only the exemplar until a photo is passed on to me. 

Tja, I have another in this book on my table, so I can have a go at the hand.  It is not one that I am aquainted with.
