One of my projects this week was this lovely adoption poem. It was lettered in a more casual script than I usually do. Long and narrow, it was made to fit a specific sized frame. The most difficult task was to keep the lettering legible while adding bounce and looseness. I compensated by making the interior lines of each stanza plainer than the upper and lower lines.
I love the poem, and have seen two versions of it. This is my favorite. I do not know the author's name.
Thanks to my personal photographer, Sandy Wright, for brightening my photo (above) to more closely match the original.
Here are some snippets of the piece:
