Scribal inspiration can come from
many places!

Manuscripts are what we think of
most often but you might also want
to consider the other Arts of the
time ! Wood-cuts, stained glass
windows, carpets, ceramics, and
even architectural carvings. Open
your mind to the possibilities and
you  may see useful things you
didn't notice  before!
