Making medieval manuscripts

Anyone teaching classes on how to make medieval manuscripts will want to take a look at the Free Library of Philadelphia's website on How Illuminated Manuscripts were Made, which takes visitors through the process of creating a manuscript from parchmenter to bookseller.

The site includes individual pages for each step of the process:

  • The Parchmenter
  • The Stationer or Bookseller I
  • The Apothecary
  • The Scribe
  • Scripts
  • The Artist/Illuminator
  • The Stationer or Bookseller II

It also includes printable worksheets for instructors.
