Ancient Manuscript Making

Thanks to Georgia Angelopoulos for pointing this out to me.  Great viewing for any beginning calligrapher or bookbinder!  Some things haven't changed much over the centuries.

Interesting, I was taught to add the slit to my quill last - but whatever works - and I ain't gonna argue with Thomas Ingmire!


  1. wow, thanks for sharing this info. i never knew half of this process. i love that it was condenced to give an overview. now i have a small idea of what bookbinding is about. how cool.

  2. I loved where he was cutting and trimming the quills. thanks
