Portrait of Queen Elizabeth in the XIX century edition of Spenser's "Faerie Queene". Come with me to the renaissance fair, fa-la-la-la-la!
Amazing great shot lighting perfect
I had a beautiful edition of Faerie Queen, but it was destroyed when I moved from Canada to the US. Lovely macro!
This one belongs to a library, but I roam used bookstores on regular basis - I have already found a nice Canterbury Tales edition, maybe Spenser's coming next Sorry to hear about your loss - I know I get very much attached to my paper friends.
