A BOOK OF HOURS
Page No. 92
Title: Women Are Most Fascinating
Women are most fascinating
between the ages of Thirty Five and Forty,
after they have won a few races
and know how to pace themselves.
Since few women ever pass forty,
can continue indefinitely.
Author Christian Dior
This Book of Hours is about Time.
Initially, quotations about the passing of hours, days, weeks and years
are illustrated, illuminated and lettered in fine detail.
The later chapters on the seasons of the year and the seasons of life --
from birth through death and on into eternity,
speak poetically about each stage of life.
The entire book was created on calfskin (genuine vellum),
painted with watercolor and illuminated with 23.75k gold leaf and powder.
