Подобные отверстия часто встречаются в пергаментных рукописях - это технологический дефект.
Здесь мы видим пример весьма необычного способа кружевной "штопки" этих отверстий  в книге XIV века (Упсала, Швеция). Это было сделано монахинями, которые купили книгу в 1417 году.
Замечательно, что они взяли для работы яркие разноцветные шелковые нити!

Broidery on a medieval page

Holes in the pages of medieval books are common. They were easily made (by the parchment maker’s knife), as in this wonderful case. Fixing it by stitching the hole together with strings of parchment is also common: parchment makers did it all the time, leaving behind “scars” on the page. What is totally unusual, however, is the repairs seen in this 14th-century book in Uppsala, Sweden. The damage is repaired, or at least masked, by good old broidery. It was done by the nuns who purchased the book in 1417. It is delightful to think that they took the effort to make a medieval hole disappear by replacing it with patterns like this, made up from pieces of silk in the most vivid of colors.
