Yesterday I braved my own writing files. My Will The Real Stickelchen Please Stand up paper is already extremely well cited. All my image placeholders look good too. It’s 35 pages so far! I keep winding up expanding it even more as it is very important to know the rest of the context.
So I’m back in the manuscript folders as I’m starting to recognise the work of different illuminators. Robinet Testard is probably my favourite. And I’m quite keen to practice his style.
It’s so modern in many ways, but so very much an expression of the time and place.
Also, this instrument could be possible now that my nerves seem to be repairing. I couldn’t play other strings instruments but it’s possible my hands could do this, and my memory could retain how to do so.
