You Can Help
For the beginning painter, if you are not someone who draws, talk to other scribes in your area to see if someone has already drawn scrolls that you can paint. You can also contact the Parchment Pursuivant to obtain scrolls that are ready for painting.
For the experienced painter, there are often higher-level scrolls (such as peerages) to be commissioned. Contact the Parchment Pursuivant to learn what is needed.
And for the calligrapher, you can add text to existing illumination or start with a blank page and leave enough room for a design to be added later.
The contents of the pages within represent the ongoing efforts and contributions of decades of scribes in Meridies. Previous versions were written and revised by Jennet of Tewkesbury, Finnegan Reid Paget, Katherine Radford of Dreywick, and Serena da Riva.
In these editions credit is given with the statement that information has been collected from Meridies Kingdom Law, The Herald's Handbook, The Manual of Styles for Scribes, and from the several works of William fitz John and Johannes the Black. Further credit is given as many thanks to Eryk Thurmansson for giving his time and effort to this project. Also thanked is Marthe Elsbeth of Oak Hill, the editor of the Manual of Styles for Scribes. Much of the information from the Manual was included in the Guidelines. The Manual was a tremendous help for the Meridian Scribe.
