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.
