How Do I Love Thee?

This poem, by Elizabeth Barrett Browning, was a delightful surprise to discover, tucked away in a folder with scans of other long-forgotten projects from the past. This was a commission for a client who wanted it to look like it had been secreted and carried in someone's wallet for many years.

SO very beautiful! And I love that poem. You do such beautiful letterforms. I need to practice practice practice. Maybe at IAMPETH I might improve a bit!

This is so sweet! How did you acheive the creased, weathered effect?

It's just beautiful!

Being a fan (and client!) of your work, I'm not surprised. :)

That's fantastic, I love the lettering and the effect of the weathered paper is gorgeous.
