Marginalia

The Latin word for 'things in the margin', marginalia refers to writing or decoration in the margins of a manuscript. Such features can form part of the original program of work, but they also can be of a secondary or even extraneous nature. Marginalia include glosses, annotations, and diagrams. Fully developed border decoration, especially that of the fifteenth century, is considered a separate genre or component of the decorative scheme.
