This design was inspired by the collage work of lettering artist Mick Paine .  Mick led a calligraphy master class at The Collection in Lincoln during the summer of 2009 which took as its starting point the TENNYSON TRANSFORMED exhibition - a collection of works brought together to celebrate the bicentenary of the birth of Alfred Lord Tennyson.  The image on the card was constructed in response to the 1911 film Enoch Arden by D W Griffiths (which tells the story of Tennyson’s poem of the same name).   The film is a piece of its time - a dark post-Victorian tragedy, made comic to our eyes by the oppressive and overwrought acting and filming techniques of the early twentieth century. It is also a reflection on the Word of God amongst us.  GOD IS IN THE BEGINNING GOD SPOKE THE WORD IS
