Codex Angel 1974

The Angel of the Codex holds the miraculous book. On the left page, "Codex Mirabilis." (Which means "miraculous book.") On the right, in Greek, "Arete' kai Sophia," which means "Virtue and Wisdom." The angel's curved lines shows how calligraphic and stylized you could get with that flexible Graphos point. I miss the sepia ink, too. I'll be trying ink stuff in my new sketchbook journal. I'm still trying to restore some order to my dwelling, filled with holiday clutter. Despite the snow and ice it is very dry and dusty. Keep flying, bookish angel.

Sepia ink in Graphos point, 3 3/4" x 9", August 1974.
