[BKARTS] Inquiry about standard sizes for parchment sheets

Greetings everyone.
I had an inquiry from a possible customer concerning the size of
parchment sheets. In the interest of authenticity, was there anything
like a standard size for parchment pages? These are being used for
sheet music, but not as choir book pages, which are VERY large so they
can be read from a distance. These are for personal use, in Italy @ the
middle 15th century. Would they possibly be the same size as ordinary
paper of the day? And if so, what was a standard paper size for the
time period? Any help and ideas you guys might have would be most
Thanks and happy holidays,
