This booklet was completed in the 2017 26
Seeds Class/Memphis, Tennessee ……… one of Reggie’s
last cities for the year-long classes. He is such a
giving teacher and we all benefitted from his
instruction one more time.
assignment was a Manuscript Book with 4 hole
Japanese stab binding. The book was made for my
husband, Bob. He is a trivia guru and knows more
facts in his head than I’ll ever remember. Each time
we passed horse statues he would patiently tell me
what the stances meant.
I made this booklet
for him in case HE ever forgets. |
The poem, Statues in the
Park, was written on Arches Text Wove paper using ground pigments for
the letting and Mitchell 2 and 2.5 nibs. The subtle pale colors on the
pages were done with pastel chalks. Completing the book, I used paste
paper for the cover and made a “bookmark” with real horse hair. What a
fun project! Thanks again Reggie for all the calligraphers you have
taught through the years. Looking forward to being in another class
with you again as you begin your NEXT journey.
