Medieval Manuscript Parodies on Twitter

I'm fond of all things Medieval; the binding I most commonly use is a late Medieval style known as the Longstitch with Linkstitch.

If you enjoyed these parodies, check out the #MedievalProblems hashtag on Twitter. And for less tongue-in-cheeck Medievalism, check out the hashtags #MedievalistProblems and #MedievalTwitter and you might like to follow the British Library's Medieval Manuscripts and Becky Cousins.
