Intertextual Space

White space within text, often found around rubrics and enlarged letters. The amount of space in a manuscript often reflects the resource available to the scribe-compiler. Intertextual space is an important component of page design. This can also be studied alongside interlexical space, and intergraphical space (between words and between letters) the better to determine precisely the hands at work in a manuscript.
