Yes, I know, it’s disgusting, the sappy. But he’s great, and I’m a designer, so it was inevitable.
Below is a selection of the Valentine’s Day, anniversary, holiday and other cards and gifts I’ve given him over the years. I should note that neither cats nor rabbits know how to spell “anniversary.”
“Happy Anniverserary” flip book card with kissing cats.
Red handmade paper wrapper, 5.5″ x 5.5″, containing folded origami paper—silver- and gold-speckled cream outside, red inside—which opens to reveal white card with demon skeleton cat with red heart in thought bubble. Tiny text reads, “meow! happy valentine’s day 2020 to richard from nicola.”
From Slate.com. Charlotte Brontë and her siblings started writing early and created many works of fiction, including this tiny book:
Before they wrote world-famous novels, the four Brontë children—in descending order of age: Charlotte, Branwell, Emily, and Anne—constructed elaborate fantasy worlds. The family was reclusive, and the children were educated at home; they spent most of their time with each other. Together, Charlotte and Branwell (who was the only Brontë brother) created a world called Angria, while Emily and Anne concentrated on an island they named Gondal. As part of their play, the siblings wrote many books, poems, and magazines.
The pages of Something About Arthur, which Charlotte wrote in 1833 at age 17, measure 2.25 by 3.6 inches. The book is 25 pages in length, and some of that scant real estate is claimed by a 42-line poem. In a foreshadowing of the Brontë sisters’ later interest in love and the class system, its plot follows two aristocratic brothers, one of whom narrates the story of the other’s romantic encounter with a poor, but worthy, peasant girl.
