This is page 30 from a project that I’ve been working on for 3 years or so. A Book of Hours….It is a book about the passing of time, seasons, seasons of life on into thoughts about eternity—on genuine vellum (calfskin with 23k gold leaf).
Initially, I sketched out the 144 pages in pencil, scanned them and my wonderful client and I discussed revisions until the pencil was where he was pleased.
Now, I am finished with the butterfly page, so on to the next…. do come visit again as I will post others.
Your butterfly calligraphy and the jewelled hourglass border are really beautiful, have you finished your book of hours now? What a treasure that will be! Jane xx
Hi Jane, Thank you for your kind compliments! No, I have 100 pages left to go in the Book of Hours. I have 3 pages in progress right now. Taking awhile! I will be posting a few more pages this month.
