Scroll created for Ealawynn Mæru’s (Alias Ela’s) Pearl award, granted 27th of March, 2021. Design by me, production via the great skill and perseverance of Kolfinna Valravn. Inspired by the Codex Aureus and the Book of Cerne. More comprehensive writeup to come.

30-second timelapse of the creation of Ela’s initial, based on the shape of an inital E from The Book of Cerne—one of several early Medieval English manuscripts in The Tiberius Group, along with the Codex Aureus, which was largely my exemplar for the layout.
