A thank you card


The initial for this card was inspired by various T's in the Codex Admontensis 2 (12th C):

Magnets for Christmas gifts

Earlier this fall Joel bought some magnetic strips for a project which they ended up not being suitable for. So, we had these long pieces of fairly lightweight sticky-back magnets. Rather than throw them away, I stuck them on a piece of cardstock, cut it into strips, and made some magnets for Christmas presents. (These have the advantage of being incredibly cheap to mail home!) The exemplars are on top, and then my interpretation; as usual, my exemplars are all from the Visconti Hours.
