Illuminations 2

Illuminations 2, originally uploaded by spinneyhead.

Second set of sketches for illuminated letters. Slightly better organised than the last lot, these are set in a grid systems so sizes are more consistent.

Not quite like Nana used to make

But not bad for a first attempt. Ginger biscuits based upon one of her hand written recipes scanned and emailed to me by my sister. They’re close enough that I welled up a little at the taste from my childhood when I tested one.
My next batch may contain stem ginger to up the gingeryness. A departure from the original recipe, I know, but worth a try.
