Postal Bird, II

Makl Art Watercolor Bird and Swedish Note
100 year old Swedish penciled note with watercolor bird and flowers

In another book, I discovered a “scrap” of sorts. In a swedish latin book of all things. It is not that the latin is swedish, but rather that it was a lesson book for someone whose native language was swedish who wished to learn latin. The old book is beautiful, but inside, coveted more than the book, were some study notes date 1914 – beautifully hand lettered in pencil,  in what appears to be a vocabulary list – one side swedish, and the other latin. A small piece of it is now permanently affixed to this tiny watercolor bird and her flowers.  The piece is roughly 5 x 7 on archival water cold press water color paper, and would make a lovely gift for a language teacher.
