My Tongue-Tied Muse is book 21 in my series Love Sonnets from Shakespeare to Baltimore. This is the first book in the series that I didn't use a wedding dress as inspiration. I believe it signals an expansion of the work I've been doing with Shakespeare's sonnets since 2019.
View of end sheet and opening page of Book 21: Love Sonnets from Shakespeare to Baltimore. I receive the Sunday New York Times. After reading the news, I enjoy embroidering the newspaper and transforming it into book pages.
This page used to be a dress. The flowers are hand painted and embellished with sequins and beads.
