Three Muses challenge was “Word Salad.” I love Illuminated Manuscripts, old books, and poems. This challenge inspired me to combine elements from those to create book pages for the poem “The Pine Lady” by Richard Le Gallienne. The three pages are 4 x 6 inches and 128 pixels/inch.
Book text: I based the text layout and font on the original book. I used clipart for the beginning letter O and the ending rose. The font is Palatino Linotype, which looked similar to the original, but was not exactly the same.
Book illustrations: The poem was not illustrated in the original book. All of the images I used have been modified. I used several images to create the Pine Lady. I created about 40% of the harp with moonbeam strings image.
I put the poem on my blog here.
