Soooo…. This is what I made for Lee Pace’s birthday. It was based on my old work, Book of Ideals. But with more improvement and fun theme.
It’s basically a papercutting of some Lee Pace’s roles in movies and TV which is bound into a book. I wanted to make all his roles into one book, but apparently I haven’t enough time to make them all. So, I chose my four favourites: Ned the Piemaker, Thranduil, Red Bandit/Roy Walker and Calpernia Adams.
Enjoy! And sorry for the noise on the photos. They were taken in my dim-lighted-room in the middle of the night without extra lighting :(
This is a farmer’s almanac, made on vellum in 1513, possibly from Scania.
Folded in its cover, it measures 5 x 5 cm, fully expanded it is 63 cm long. It contains pictures of the months, with chores typical for that. In circles next to the pictures, red lines mark the bright hours of the day, black ones dark. In addition, the calendar has an overview of the holidays and saint’s days for the whole year, each one marked with a little figure illustrating the commemorative day; e.g. a lion for the feastday of St. Mark.
