Marriage Announcement of Napoleon, Emperor of France, to Archduchess Marie-Louise of Austria, received by President James Madison, 1810.

Item From: General Records of the Department of State. (09/1789-).

Here is the marriage announcement of Napoleon Bonaparte and his second wife Marie-Louise of Austria. It was sent to President Madison and is signed by Napoleon himself.



Story to this one. Started as phone doodle on envelope from the taxman, long call meant it got more elaborate. After call finished got more and more engrossed, then tried some new Montana acrylic white which goes onto brown lovely. No idea why it’s an ‘N’ though.

Not your average alphabet book!  This is Juan de Yciar’s calligraphy manual, first published in Spain in 1548 and shown here in an edition of 1566.  Yciar’s work uses woodcuts to instruct the reader in various forms of calligraphy and ornament, elevating handwriting to an art form in a time when everyday script was being superseded by print.

(Notice anything familiar about that capital M?)
