In my copious spare time...  
I really need to acquire at least one solid calligraphy hand and probably two - one early and one late...

Early sources to consider:
St Cuthbert

Codex Amiatinus

Insular, continental, book hand, chancery script?

Persona-appropriate. :)

The above and the Book of Deer are the most plausible. I was going to pick one and use it as the exemplar.
