Ah, are they scroll or are they charters? If scrolls then I agree, but we
give out very few scrolls and a vast amount of charters. Are you giving
credit who did the original artwork on the charter or the colorist? And I
have to say if you are giving credit to the illuminator why not the scribe
as well. I agree if someone does an impressive work and an original scroll
then perhaps more attention should be paid, but I think that giving credit
to the colorist of the charter would only lengthen the court.
It does make one pause however.
