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!
