There's a part of me that would love to learn how to illuminate manuscripts. There's a bigger part of me that realizes that the art form is tedious. I suppose that's why i'm an animator.
Plus manuscripting (i don't know the actual word for it, so i made this one up) would have little to no practical application, other than artifact forgery which is good money but weighs too heavily on the soul.
In any case, this is my un-named star of my story this year. i think the manuscript samples i used are the work of the Limbourg Brothers. I just thought they looked neat.
