最近網路上流傳了一張韓國學生課本的塗鴉，走的是韓劇的唯美風，而荷蘭萊頓大學教授Erik Kwakkel 正在研究中世紀學生課本上的塗鴉，他說: 「看到中世紀時的學生的課本塗鴉，和現在沒相差太多，我覺得很很驚訝!當我看到了僧侶以塗鴉表現自己的性格、幽默感時，就好像去了趟時光之旅，回到了中世紀，並坐在僧侶旁邊。」
Medieval eye candy
Dr Kwakkel is making an unlikely name for himself on the internet by posting "medieval eye candy" that he comes across during the course of his research. And the doodles are by far the most popular. "Normally, scribes would doodle or write snatches of lettering after cutting their nibs, to make sure they were the correct width," he says.
