Here is a new version of a text by André Gide that I already calligraphied for my professor. This time I took only the last part of the text and wrote without any ruling to guide me. As for the decoration, I reused an embossed stained glass pattern previously utilized in other works.
To see the whole work, follow the link to the gallery.
Probably the final version of this work. I added a fragment of Petronius' Satiricon (bottom right) in Luxeuil's script and calligraphied a large cadel initial later highlighted in black to enhance the visibility.
The wall will remain like until the end of the year then I will erase all white a coat of white paint before starting another work.
Here is a fragment from Thus spoke Zarathustra by Friedrich Nietzsche that I really like. I wanted to give rise to the first word of the text, thus I drew it from a typography and made it half embossed, half engraved on metal.
The remaining part of the text is calligraphied with a fraktur, I felt it was the accurate script for it.
As usual, to see the whole work, have a look to the gallery.
