For the parchment test we chose a small design of a dragon from Vienna, Osterreichische Nationalbibliothek, Cod 2315, fol 100v, a medical textbook made in Paris around 1280, reproduced in Christopher de Hamel, A History of Illuminated Manuscripts, second edition, Phaidon. The design with the dragon is in the middle of a page with lots of decoration and what looks like a text with a gloss and handwritten notes by different people around it.

I've been using these as practice pieces, and the first are now almost finished.

Once they are scanned, we'll put up scans of the original and my poor reproductions of it...
