More SCA nerdliness


Complete a Magister’s requirements for Bookbinding.
I have decided.

Here is what I shall do for this:

Teach classes in the following – Coptic codices, Byzantine codices, Persian bindings, gothic bindings, Carolingian bindings (I might replace the gothic bindings with limp bindings, as it is easier). These classes will need to take a full day each).

Submit a paper on something. I have not decided what yet, but it will be awesome. Perhaps on, I dunno, preservation? I’ll have to look at examples to figure this out.

The master project will be a fully gilded Persian book. I am expecting it to take quite a while (did I mention that Persian books are case-bound with pasteboard? I don’t have to saw/drill anything! Hooray!).

Time to start focusing on the Static Arts. It’s a good thing that I’m going to RUM this year.

About HappyGoth

By day, I'm a graphic designer. By night, I'm a knitter. I'm doing my part to keep Hotlanta stylish. I imagine that if you don't already understand the title of the blog, you're probably confused and perhaps slightly annoyed, but never fear - I do have a reason (and it's a good one). Having gone to hear Stephanie Pearl McPhee, and then having been inspired to blog about knitting, I found myself wondering what to call the blog. I recalled a conversation I had with Mouse and the Chicken Goddess about why it is a Bad Idea to anger knitters - this conversation was following SPM, aka the Yarn Harlot telling the assembled throng about Those Who Do Not Understand Knitting and Therefore Belittle It Much to the Chagrin of Others, or TWDNUKTBMCO, which is not the acronym she used but is the one I'm using because I forgot hers - that is, we are numerous and we all have very pointy sticks, easily transforming into an angry mob. Therefore, knitters = angry mob.
