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.
