Reflecting on the 12 Days

 

I've put the 12 Days of Christmas together for a final look. These postings are always a quiet interlude for me to reflect on the season. This year they were made even more special by the source of the words, Nowell Sing We Clear's book, Songs and Carols for Midwinter and Christmastide. The voices of Tony Barrand, Andy Davis, Fred Breuning, and John Roberts have been an essential part of our holiday season for close to 40 years. The lettering was done with Calligraphica Crystals and a Hiro/Leonhardt #40 pen nib, both from John Neal, Bookseller. The lettering was all done spontaneously with no sketches or lines.
