"Golden Words..." for a golden anniversary (1997)

How differently I would do this now! Better bookmaking techniques; less brashness in the gold of the cover; a less "medieval" looking script ... but back then my calligraphy consisted of just the one script (since forgotten, and the hand more shaky now, alas). I hadn't yet learned the value of understatement, nor had practice produced finesse in making books.

The work that went into the object was appreciated, and Mom put it carefully away.
