I made this book from start to finish in Laurie Doctor's workshop  at the 2009 Calligraphy Connection at St John's College in Collegeville, Minnesota. I was inspired by the little Linear B "letter" that looked, to me, like a little girl.

 

The text is by me and my alter ego, a seven-year-old named Annie.

 

One is:

 

Some Lessons My Mother Taught Me 

 

and the other is

 

Some Questions You Could Ask

 

I worked with both my right and left hands.

 

My mother died when I was 7. I didn't get to say gooodbye so there are some things that I work through every now and then.

 

The paper is Arches Text Wove covered with so much acrylic paint that it feels like oil cloth.
