Concertina Book


Here is the book that I completed yesterday. It has ten pages in the concertina and the front and back covers are the same. The text is known as "Caedmon's hymn" and is the remaining fragment of the first recorded poem written in England during the 7th century. The hand is Uncial.

I can let you have the full text if you are interested.
