Textured Text: Bird in Blue
For this Tuesday, a Textured Text composition that incorporates a Faux Cyanotype, the text was created from a combination of old dictionary pages and a page from an very old school book that introduced young students to the tales of Shakespeare.
“Tis almost morning. I would have thee gone,
And yet no farther than a wanton’s bird,
That lets it hop a little from his hand,
Like a poor prisoner in his twisted gyves,
And with a silken thread plucks it back again,
So loving-jealous of his liberty.”
Romeo And Juliet Act 2, scene 2, 176–185
