#2 in the Book Inscription series. This inscription was in a 1932 Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin. I thought it an odd book for this inscription and felt it warranted an image from an earlier time period; an image that had a bit of gravity and seriousness. Certainly a frivolous person wouldn’t want to be remembered by this particular book! I would love to know the story behind this choice.
I have started a new digital series inspired by book inscriptions found in my vintage book collection. This first one was inspired by an inscription found in an 1894 copy of Washington Irving’s Sketchbook. I went with a later image (found on Pinterest) for this collage. I have also been inspired by some great digital graphics kits by GT Designs.
