Mead Bowen, clad as a nobleman.

Greetings and salutations to you, wanderer!
You've stumbled upon Mead Bowen's guide to medieval writing surfaces.

In the spirit of the subject, Mead (that's me) shall assume the guise of a foppish nobleman as he takes you through the directions step-by-step on video.

This guide will detail the principal writing surfaces used in medieval Europe, parchment and vellum; their uses in history; and how to impart the appearance of parchment to ordinary copy paper, to write in calligraphy, and to seal up the writing to create your very own medieval document.
