Medieval Flourishing!

Why restrict the delight of flourishing to the pointed pen crowd?  Get over yourselves!  ;D  Flourishing has been going on for a long time....

By the way, I visited the old cloister library in St. Gallen (Switzerland) last year, where they exhibit ancient manuscripts. In some books were annotations like "this new ink sucks" and "it's so cold, how am I supposed to write in here?" ;D
