Saw an awesome example of a Guidonian hand in MS Codex 1248 at this morning’s Coffee with a Codex.

A cute and very clear Guidonian hand from MS Codex 1248 with a musical scale in the palm and at the bottom a lace cuff with the letters Alpha and Omega on either side and IHS in the middle of the wrist.
