  7. I remember reading something on how monks and scribes (the distinction blurs quite a bit in the middle ages) had a tendency to put inappropriate images, text, etc. in the margins of the manuscripts they were writing. Stuff like ‘this room is cold and my hand hurts’, gossip about other scribes, that sort of thing.  This reminds me a bit of the same thing.
