Carolingian

This spring 2011 we studied Carolingian hand, developed around 800 AD under Charlemagne as a common writing hand.  The first piece I completed was a haiku written for my friend Jane by Eric Christian (deceased).  the appellation is in brush lettering.  I signed it with a chop in my initials, which I designed and cut from a vinyl eraser.

This is the original scan with adjustments.
