Time Is Life's Vital Coinage
Time is life's vital coinage,
yet with it I am a spendthrift;
I let it run out like sand
through my fingers.
A BOOK OF HOURS
Page No. 7
Title: Time is Life's Vital Coinage
This Book of Hours is a book about Time –
the passing of the hours, weeks and years
are illustrated, illuminated and lettered in fine detail.
The 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 23/24k gold leaf and powder.
An article describes the making of this book is in
John Neal Booksellers “Bound & Letters 14:4”
A Book of Hours was commissioned by one of Holly’s clients.
