We’ve just come back from a wonderful week in Skye.
I collected tiny shells on one of the beaches.I want to use them in a book.
I found an Old English riddle from The Exeter Book (I’m already using part of The Ruin from the same source for the Artists Books 3.0 swop). Although it’s really about a conch shell some of the words seemed appropriate to go with my collection.

Exploring lettering (it’s a long time since I did any serious calligraphy), materials and a palette suggested by the shells and the beach.


I really appreciate hearing from you. Thank you for taking the time.
