This is a horrible photo of a delightful broadside featuring Lewis Carroll’s deathless “Jabberwocky.”

Accordion book

I completed my second handmade book for the calligraphy classes I’m taking. This time the script is italic, and I used watercolors on wave green Canson Mi-Teintes paper. Click on the image below to see more photos.

Calligraphy book

December 12, 2010

For a class project we made a book using the text of our choice. I chose Gerard Manley Hopkins’s “Spring and Fall” and wrote it in humanist bookhand on cream-colored Frankfurt paper. The lines, written in watercolor, change color gradually as the poem progresses. The leafy paper I used for the endpapers is the background in this photo.
