I’ve been involved in various kinds of historical recreation since I went to my first SCA event at the age of 13. Since then, I’ve been researching and recreating historical costume, cosmetics, cooking and fiber arts.
Why Commonplace Book? A commonplace book was something between a notebook, a diary. It could include instructions for everything from making a pudding to treating smallpox, accounts, observations about the weather-basically anything that the author thought was important enough to write down for later.
My own interests are equally wide ranging and eclectic, so, Commonplace Book.
