So I did calligraphy for three scrolls for Birka this year, two for the Signet office, and one private commission.

Below are the Baronial Investiture scrolls for the new Baron and Baroness of Stonemarche. I only did the calligraphy. Words for both were written by Master Harold von Auerbach, illumination for the one on the left by Baroness Emma MacMinn, and the one on the right by my Laurel, Mistress Eleanore MacCarthaig (click to embiggen). The hand is Rotunda, to match the late period Italian white vine illumination.

This one was commissioned from me by [livejournal.com profile] farmhouse_ghost (Mistress Vienna) as an indenture contract for her first apprentice. The hand is my beloved Batarde, and the layout is based on 15th C. indenture documents like this one (Vienna provided the text). Two copies are done facing each other, and then after both are signed, it is cut down the middle (through the words, in this case, East Kingdom in Latin, representing the "government"), and each party is given half. I was honored to participate in the ceremony by doing the cutting. It was awesome. (again, click to embiggen)
