Another find in my sorting. I think this photo was taken around 1983. The lettering was done with an automatic pen. The quote is from Margaret Fuller from a letter to Samuel G. Ward. I did it for an exhibition called Concord Quotes at the Concord Free Library in Concord, MA. Margaret Fuller was a friend and colleague of Emerson and the Transcendentalists. I have read two excellent biographies of her: Margaret Fuller: A New American Life by Megan Marshall and The Lives of Margaret Fuller: A Biography by John Matteson.
