It should come as no surprise that the British Library has an extensive collection of medieval manuscripts. Much of it has been digitized (as well as manuscripts from other time periods), and you can examine them in fine detail here. You can zoom in so close that you can see the fiber of the paper, every stroke of the quill. It is seriously awesome. The medieval manuscript department even has a blog dedicated to exploring the collection and posting the cool stuff they come across. Check it out!
Eileen Maksym studied philosophy at Yale and theology at Boston College, and now uses both to write science fiction. Currently she is an academic nomad, following her astrophysicist husband around the world, two kids in tow. When not writing or kid wrangling, Eileen is a hopeless fangirl. She can be found on Twitter (@eileenmaksym) squeeing over her favorite shows, most of which involve famous detectives, dashing time travelers, and creatures that are never, ever referred to as zombies.
