Garth of Windhaven' Award of Arms scroll,

"This was my third scroll and it turned out much better than
the first two. I am a terrible calligrapher, mostly because
I hate it. Therefore not wanted to do any more of it than I
have to, I don't bother to letter the text several times on
scratch paper to figure out how much space it will take. So
as I did the calligraphy, I saw that I was almost half-way
through and had only filled up a quarter of the space allotted
for the text! Solution -- do a BIG illuminated letter to start
the next paragraph and swap to a much bigger nib. And I still
have half of the space left unfilled, so I drew a rectangle out
from the side of the shield. Didn't know what would go in there
at the time, but continued on with yet another illuminated letter
and a larger font size, and eventually filled in most of the page.
Whew!" -- Tatiana
