An animated calligraphic poetry collaboration between poet, Lucy English and artist, Kate Darnell. This is part of Lucy English's Book of Hours project: thebookofhours.org.
Calligraphy created by Kate Darnell for this film began as ink on paper, which she then scanned and put into motion. Illustrations are either created by the artist or are from antique field guides and other vintage sources. Special thanks are due to Michigan State University Special collections for access to "Florigraphia britannica; or, Engravings and descriptions of the flowering plants and ferns of Britain" by Deakin, Richard, 1809-1873.
The poem is read by Lucy English and the bird song in the background is by Hargissssound, used with a Creative Commons license through freesound.org
