it was not until the year 2008 that the world got to know the book of miracles ("wunderzeichenbuch"). researches dated the book back to the mid-16th century, when it was created in Augsburg/Germany by unknown Artist(s). it is a collection of 167 guaches/watercolors, depicting apocalyptic Scenes of signs that occured in the sky or in nature.
this incredible work of art is owned today by a private american collector, but a facsimile Edition is available since about one year.
Background: acrylics brayered in blue and black
i embossed the words with yellow powder...
sometimes i stamp the words from the end to the beginning for better space Management;)
after taking this Picture i managed to let the powder fall down to the kitchen floor... (a sign? ...) aaaargh!! thanks god i had cleaned the floor just before, so i could save most of the powder back into the jar. [and i could have sworn i made a Picture of the mishap, but there was None on my camera... my Memory is playing tricks on me...!!]
the stars (stamp attic) are embossed in glittering orange
