medieval doodling

Are you a doodler? Well they existed as far back as medieval times as proven by scraps of papers used to pad binding in medieval books. Many include doodles of animals, faces, geometry, music, various languages, etc. It pains me that one man and his students are taking bindings off to see what is found within, but he seems to be doing it respectfully. Still, I'm sure rare books librarians will cringe reading this. An interesting quick view at  http://www.cnn.com/2014/11/03/world/medieval-doodles/?cid=ob_articlesidebarall&iref=obinsite
