John, con't (12)

Again, should be pretty obvious where we are here. Remember that red line I've been talking about? Well this is where it leads. Other than the coffee stains it's almost the only colour in this entire section of the book, to give it more impact. It's lined with gold leaf. The image is taken from a painting commission I did, based on the purchaser's dream.

This part is actually bits of canvas and scrap paper glued to the page, then painted and written over. Since this book's purpose is to be a piece of art rather than to transmit the text like a tradition manuscript, it didn't need to be legible.
