Ages ago I promised to post some images of my partners great grandmothers recipe book. I am currently studying some of my collected objects and documenting their characteristics in an effort to find out why I am so attached to them, even those that I do not have any family connection to. With the recipe book I feel that I am perhaps feeling a sense of loss for the way it is written, something as simple as the style of handwriting.
There is less of a focus on cultivating lovely hand writing now that we have computers as a way of presenting the written word in a neat and tidy way. My own handwriting is a rather unattractive spider like scrawl and I wish it was more like the images below.
