Cradle Song
William Blake - 1757-1827

Sleep, sleep, beauty bright,
Dreaming in the joys of night;
Sleep, sleep; in thy sleep
Little sorrows sit and weep.

Sweet babe, in thy face
Soft desires I can trace,
Secret joys and secret smiles,
Little pretty infant wiles.

As thy softest limbs I feel
Smiles as of the morning steal
O'er thy cheek, and o'er thy breast
Where thy little heart doth rest.

O the cunning wiles that creep
In thy little heart asleep!
When thy little heart doth wake,
Then the dreadful night shall break.

Hand Aged and Manually Typed Poetry on a 1922 Underwood #5 then Encapsulated in a Wood Frame.

Quality archival paper is carefully hand aged to resemble old parchment then a literature piece of your choosing is hand typed onto the page.

This is framed in either a plain black or white frame with a tree sculpture built around it to showcase your chosen literature. This can be a poem, verse, quote, book page or even song lyrics.

The typed art page is sealed with a glass pane, it can be hard to see in the photographs but rest assured your piece will be sealed by glass to protect it.

The glass is cleaned and inserted with gloves to ensure no fingerprints on the inside and the wire sculpture is then built around the frame with tarnish resistant coated copper wire.

The entire process is done manually by hand. Nothing is printed. Each piece is utterly unique.
