Astounding calligraphy + amusing comics
This very talented blog reader has written me in calligraphy before, and it was such a treat to hear from him again! I think I want to frame this envelope, it is so magnificent. And I love the feather flourish at the top.
The return address is beautiful, too, and the sealing wax matches the ink.
I know you want a closer look at that eagle seal:
Dazzling! Now, someone might be able to tell me why the crowned eagle is sticking out his tongue? That must have some interesting significance.
This kind blog reader's ostensible purpose was to send me these very amusing comics about letter-writing; they're fun, but I enjoyed his writing far more!
Indeed, the whole letter was that incredibly beautiful.
How can ANYONE think that an email could ever equal THIS?
