The Illuminated Sketchbook of Stephen Schriber

Regular commenter Ron19 post this link to an amazing little late-medieval sketchbook by a monk named Stephen Schriber. Brother Schriber is quite obviously doing studies and practice work for his marginals and capitals. I have a lot of books about medieval illumination, but I’ve never seen one like this, where you see the process of the illuminator. Great find.
