Another long weekend and here are more cadels.

A Cadel E


and a K :


Both are, once more, inspired by the Ms AN II 3 from the Basel Library.
To see more pics, just have a look to the gallery.

S

A good thing with 3 days long weekends is that one have time to work on things :




A new cadel initial, once more inspired by the  Ms AN II 3 from the library of the university in Basel.
There will be more of these ...

sub products

No, I didn't disappear, nor have I stopped to calligraph.
I'm working, to prove it, here are some sub products of my ongoing works (which I won't show for the moment).



These are only "trash", created by doing something totally different but it gives me ideas ...

Albertus

I know I don't post very often these last weeks but it's because of spring, spring & garden. And this means a lot of work.
I nevertheless continue to work on different projects (even if they have a very tiny link with calligraphy) & I consequently have the pleasure of introducing Albertus (he's missing 1 & a half arm but that will probably be solved shortly).



He also has no head (I'll find one) and no legs but that's not necessary :-)

Merci

An M to say thank you (in french we say merci).

I designed the cadel from patterns previously seen in different manuscripts.


And, as you would have guessed, it's been done with electro etching on tin.

knitting

Winter is coming. I know spring has just begun but, winter is coming.
I consequently decided to get myself to knitting. As I just can't cope with needles and wool, I opted for steel and copper so as to make myslef a scarf for winter (cos it's coming !!).


I doubt it can keep me warm, but until then, it keeps me busy :-)
