In the 1500's and 1600's, many people created miscellanies , personal notebooks in which they wrote, drew pictures, and copied things they wanted to keep. Many of these were similar to today's blogs or diaries.
Thomas Trevelyon wrote and drew a large and famous miscellany in the early 1600's; you can see three of its pages above. Try creating your own miscellany. What kinds of writing would you put in it? What kinds of illustrations? Would you want to start your writing with big colored letters like Trevelyon has?
