On making an heirloom

One of the most appreciated practices I've had in my releases has been the sharing of a white flight feather, something for people to hold in their hands and remember. Now I frame them with an illuminated and calligraphed card, personalized for the event. It's a lot of detail, something to be treasured or handed down. I love doing the painting and the lettering, handling the inks and gilt and pens. It's peaceful work, and it's business, but it is also an act of love.
