This Sunday I will begin my history lessons in miniature at the MN Renaissance Festival by making pictorial street signs that English residents may have seen in their towns. Since most of the people werre illiterate, pictures served as primary forms of communication. I will be moving about the grounds, making sings in 1/12th scale and having patrons guess what street name they think a sign might signify. If time allows I will also be doing some small-scale bookbinding at the Paper Mill after 2 pm.
