"Book of Hours" Scroll Competition The theme for this competition is quite simple but has a lot of room for creativity. You must base your design on a Book of Hours. It can be any Book of Hours. The caveat is, the scroll must be done in miniature. This means that the scroll must be done at a maximum of 5"x7". There will be two categories:
