This is the ultimate book for people who want to try making ink themselves and for people who love ugly dogs. For people who like pretty pictures and who enjoy dismantled frogs. For those who love history but not the dates of battles. For those who like to color nicely and who prefer cursing in Middle Dutch. And for people who didn't know all this about themselves yet. This is the book that piles of books have been waiting for for hundreds of years in the depositories of libraries, archives and monasteries, until they were allowed to come together in this book.
