Project Summary: The Scriptorium

I have decided to use the project as an exploration of a subject I am interested in as a way to follow the interest and gather information in one place. It is really a simple and personal blog which I don’t intend to be seen by the world, as I am not a scholar of the subject. I think it is a good exercise for me to learn to create/structure a blog.

So here is an outline for my project about illuminated manuscripts:

Editorial Calendar
While in any work-related situation I use and appreciate the structure of an editorial calendar, I don’t think I would really have a use for one here.
