"Invictus"

Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.

In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.

Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds and shall find me unafraid.

It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate,
I am the captain of my soul.

- William Ernest Henley

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.
