ARTICLE SHARING: "Oh, My Hand: Complaints Medieval Monks Scribbled in the Margins of Illuminated Manuscripts"

There is an entertaining little article over on brain pickings about the comments that monks have made in the margins of manuscripts. Just a few of my favorites:
  • New parchment, bad ink; I say nothing more.
  • That's a hard page and a weary work to read it.
  • Thank God, it will soon be dark.
Check it out!
