“Our Christian people regard with great joy everything that contributes to the splendor of the ceremonies. Jesus—who was poor in His private life—received ointment on His feet. See Thomas Aquinas (Prima Secundae, q. 102, art. 5, ad 10) and the holy Curé of Ars. The Church has always loved beautiful churches, and so forth. We must preserve our sacred patrimony and make sure sacred objects do not become secular possessions.”
— Abbot & Council Father denouncing “noble simplicity” during Vatican II

Wrapped in the Liber Usualis
published 20 June 2015 by Veronica Brandt

wrapped big HIS IS MY TWO YEAR OLD DAUGHTER on an uncharacteristically peaceful afternoon. The scarf is an experiment with photomosaics and a print on demand company called Redbubble.

The idea came while doing the washing up, mulling over how to make a design big enough to cover a bedspread. What if the pages of a book were laid out in a pleasing pattern? How would it look using the Liber, with it’s variations of light music and denser areas of text?

Curiosity and irascible appetite got the better of me and the end result is available here on Redbubble.

wrapped foot The scarf comes up first, but the bedspread idea is still available there if you dig around. The scarf seemed to have potential as an alternative to my regular mantilla, though the large polyester square is very different to my regular cotton lace mantilla. The greeting card shrinks the design down so it is impossible to read the pages, but you can click on the photo to the left to see that the scarf is quite readable, apart from a few places where a page has been cropped too closely.

The technical meanderings are briefly described here.

And I would like to wish my mother a Happy Birthday for today too.
