Looking at the last post

Looking at the last post I realise that as this book of names is shown folded there is no real indication of scale. I don't remember the number of names, but the book laid out flat is around 12 feet long. One reason for using joined sections was to avoid having to rewrite all the names if there was an error too great to erase. The window contained a rainbow and this allowed me to use coloured ribbons to bind the sections.

Another find

While gathering some objects together for a meeting next week I (re)-discovered this. Made around the millenium  it is a book, bound with ribbons, listing the names of those in the parish of Pennard, who donated towards a window in the church.

This post is a piece which was accepted and was part of the CLAS (Calligraphy and Lettering Arts Society) exhibition 'The Art of the Letter' earlier this year. I was pleased that it was accepted and delighted with the comment that accompanied it on its return. As usual I went up to the wire finishing it for the exhibition, but next year I'll devote more time to it.
