Rapid Fire Book Tag

From David Wiley at The Scholarly Scribe–

My friend Joshua Robertson, author of books such as Anaerfell and Melkorka and owner of Crimson Edge Press, just did a fun little rapid fire book tag on his YouTube channel. Instead of tagging people he left it open for people to answer themselves. And who says a blogger can’t participate in these tags? So check out my answers to these questions and feel free to make a blog post or a video and answer them yourselves. If you comment here with a link to them, I will gladly visit and comment!

The Skinny on Bad Parchment

My favourite activity is to touch, smell, and listen to the crackling sound of cows and sheep that have been dead for a thousand years. That’s right, I am talking about medieval parchment, the standard material for books made between the fifth and thirteenth centuries. Animal skin replaced papyrus (standard up to the fifth century) and would ultimately be challenged by paper, which competed for dominance during the later medieval period. Parchment was resilient, however, and it was even used by early printers, including Gutenberg himself – showing the use of animal skin did not die with the medieval manuscript…
