Two weeks ago Sandra and I again were guests at the annual Market of Hernen Castle. This time I brought the Minion Press, instead of the usual instruments.
We stood next to our friends of the Paper Unicorn, a group of medieval book binders. They brought a case of lead type, which had to be sorted (their imaginary apprentice knocked it over earlier).
Visiting Hernen is like a warm bath. It’s where we started our re-enactment hobby, and has a special place in our hearts. Home to a great community of people, re-enactors of all plumage. Craftsmen and -women, passionate about their work, and willing to share.
When you’re in the neighborhood, be sure to pay the castle a visit. Especially at the re-enactment events!
In case you missed this: in the weekend of november 11-12 the Minion Press will join “The Paper Unicorn” at the “Boekkunst“-fair in the Pieterskerk, Leiden.
