I've moved this to the 1100 - 1500 thread, as it's more likely to get a good reply there.

well you could get my book "the wooden bowl" pub stobart davies which has lots of photos of original bowls. The MOL book mentioned by handbag has drawings of 25 or so bowls. Carole Moris wood and woodworking from anglo scandinavian York has drawings of a good number of med bowls too. Other than that its lots of small individual papers with an odd bowl or two in each.
Also I would recomend looking at the "bad bowl amnesty" thread which was on here a month or so ago and has good info on how to make a decent replica.
