Shakespeare’s famous sonnet 18, done in a 14th century gothic style, as a birthday gift for my little sister who turned 19.
I asked her what she wanted for a birthday gift this year, and she couldn't definitively decide between either an illuminated Sonnet 18 or a Tom Hiddleston (as Henry V) pyrography clock. So I chose for her.
She particularly loves Tom Hiddleston's reading of Sonnet 18 (which, I think, is a very good one), and now whenever I read it I read it in his voice, haha. Enjoy!
For those interested, here's a link to Tom Hiddleston reading Sonnet 18: www.youtube.com/watch?v=b6Q_Io…Background parchment texture used: Plain Brown Paper texture.
