My big ticket item was the grail knights and the killer rabbit, which went for $80.

The piece that went for the highest price was this piece by another scribe, which went for $110.

So I got to practicing and this is what I came up with.
The handwriting is in the insular majascule style, which was developed in the early 7th century by Irish monks and which was widely used through the mid 9th century. The illumination style mimics the style used in those same 7th to 9th century documents.

Assuming this is a real post, you've posted the wrong link.

I swear that was a different link when I saw it last. But now that I see both of kerilpatel's posts have the same "buy this tea" link in them, I think someone should probably take a peek. :D

I bet that tea is from India.
