Direct from Terrance Lindall: Artist at Work

My friend Terrance Lindall is still hard at work on his Paradise Lost folios and has sent me the following two images with permission to post them.

The first is from the Wickenheiser Folio, named for the Milton scholar and rare book collector Robert J. Wickenheiser. Specifically, it's a full view of the 13 x 19 inch Pandaemonium page, and the hand-painted borders are 24 k gold leaf:

Below, you see the second image, which compares the Pandaemonium pages of the Wickenheiser Folio (left) and the Nii Foundation Folio (right):

Terrance notes:

"The Nii folio page is under protective archival cover and is therefore less intense."
But the Nii Foundation Folio page is still clear enough for comparison, so we can see the clear differences in the the hand painted, 24-karet-gold-leaf borders.

That's all that I have time for today, for I face early classes and a lot of grading.

Mr. Lindall is truly an impressive artist. I admit I envy his talent.

Yes, he is, and he's chosen to illustrate the right poem by the right poet to be remembered for.
