I saw these in the San DIego Library’s rare books room. I can’t remember what they are called, what the language is, what they say, how old they are, who made them for what purpose, nor how they are made. I wish I had taken some notes.
But they are extraordinarily beautiful in their graphic simplicity, strength, rhythm, and contrast of color and line. The delicate red with the dark, bold black; the horizontal format; the repetition and variation — lots of the things I talked about yesterday.
There is such loveliness in the world — nature-made and human-made!
