Ode to joy

Made on a page of the 1708 book, An Exposition the Five Poetical Books of the Old Testament, Vol. II, 8 3/4 x 14"

I thought it would be a great idea to ink the intro for the Chance Press book. It was a great idea, and like many great ideas, it was also a tremendous pain in the ass. But I'd said I was going to do it, so I was stuck.

When I was finished I made this to send to the goofy kids at Chance Press. I hid it in a stack of unpainted paper the same size, and Jordan almost chopped it up when he was sizing the blank sheets. That would have been cool.
