Andrew Marvell's "The Garden" #1

Andrew Marvell's The Garden

When my daughter was very small, I had an idea to design and commission cloth books based on classic poems.

I drew several sketches. With this particular one, relating to Andrew Marvell’s 1600s poem “The Garden” I aimed for something like the aesthetic of 17th century stumpwork embroidery.

I stumbled on the drawing today, and thought I would upload it here – because I’d still like to create something like this, one day.
