    Love the Ostara pages — times of change, borders…You might enjoy this article from the New York Times last week — I love the analogy between illuminated pages and webpages, and of course the hands-on experience of creating something beautiful you can hold in your hands. The project is sponsored by the Morgan Library (drooooool).
