I'm Sydney. I'm a baker, and you'll probably see some pictures of my work now and again. Eventually I'll go back to school, but I'm currently taking a break.

I reblog/post a lot of crap, and I'm trying to start tagging and cataloguing it.

Medieval dachshund - Or: drawing with words

Here are three examples of a technique called “micrography”: decorative scenes that are drawn with words written in a tiny script. While there are examples from Latin books made in the West (here is one), the technique is particularly common in medieval Hebrew manuscripts. The drawings are usually found in biblical manuscripts and they appear to be commentaries to the text. The technique, whereby a scribe wrote in the smallest handwriting possible, goes back to the 9th century AD. The examples here, from the 13th century, shows just how entertaining the word-made drawings can be: they are an opportunity for the scribe to frolick in the margins of the page - like drawing a creature that looks like a dachshund.

Pic: London, British Library, Additional MS 21160 (13th century, more about the manuscript here). More about micrography here.

Tumblr, can you help a girl out? I’m trying to remember the name of a small book I once had.

The story starts with a young girl in India, who is married off and sent to live with her new family. Her mother-in-law is horrible to her, and only wanted the dowry. Her father-in-law was nice, but he may have died, I don’t remember. Her husband was sickly this whole time, and eventually died, and now that she’s a widow that they don’t want, they send her to a city (I don’t remember which) to beg.

She lives on the street for a while, but eventually finds work embroidering saris. While working there she has various friendships, one of which was a girl who strings marigolds for a living. Eventually, she meets a rickshaw carrier, they fall in love or whatever, and eventually get married and go live in the country.

Help. 

I FOUND IT.

Not like I gave anyone time to think about it.
