First Vade Mecum
This is another artisan’s swap piece, from the autumn of 2012. It is a vade mecum, or “go with me” type book that has pages which fold out. This was my very first attempt at making one. It’s a bitch. I learned A LOT doing this one. I made this one into a cookbook of favorite SCA recipes, as the exemplars are reference works. They don’t typically hold up well. I have made a few since then, and have incorporated new ideas each time.
