Jesus Christ in the garden of Gethsemane


Good thing we don't celebrate this moment in his life. Worst holiday ever, except maybe Flag Day.

The pure body of the Immaculate Virgin was not a prey for worms


Page from the book "Life of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of God; with the History of the Devotion to Her. Completed by the Traditions of the East, the Writing of the Fathers, and the Private History of the Jews." The title actually keeps going, believe it or not. But I think that's quite enough. Published by D. & J. Sadler & Co., 31 Barclay St., New York, 1853. With gold leaf and orange dye.

My Little Twin Daughters


And, lovely pearls,
When little girls
No longer sit ye on my knee,
May winsome ways
And gladsome days
Twin sisters your companions be.

Tame Hawk


For the Rifrakt holiday show this past weekend, I made a bunch of collage-y pieces from old books. I cut out some pages and then selectively applied gold and/or silver leaf, and sometimes orange dye. This one's just silver leaf. The illustration is from a book of stories and poems called "Chatterbox", published in 1885.
