As some of you know or may have guessed, I've been working on a large project for some time now. The poem is finished (until I decide to revise it --- maybe next year, definitely not before September) and ready for presentation in August. It has been put into a manuscript by a very talented scribe name Jean Valentine (or, in the SCA, Matilda Bosville de Bella Aqua). She calligraphed it in a proto-Gothic hand, following the various models that you can find in the Old Icelandic - Norse manuscripts of the Arnamagnæan Institute.
This is the manuscript that Matilda produced. Feel free to look, but not to download, please.
It is a beautiful piece and I'm looking forward to actually having it in my hands :)
Who knows, with his inspiring me (and having other paperwork I really should be doing), maybe the Muse will return from her little vacation this week!
