Week #23
This work was done by Maggie Naylor in Memphis in 2017 for the session “Italic and Variations” in 26 Seeds: a Year to Grow. In her own words:
 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.

One homework 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.
