This is so beautiful! If you had a website I would totally pay a few dollars to send this to my mom. It looks really prefessional and pretty. And I like the poem. You are so talented!

Actually, if you print me out five of these (close to 8"by 10")I will pay you for them. They would make great gifts.

Thanks! :aww:

Old English was really the only one I could use for the picture's size that was readable without being boring ol' text (which I never tried, 'cause I wanted fantasy). All the scripts were really hard/impossible to read in order to fit the poem on the pages. :XD:

It would be worth your while to collect more fonts for the future. But yes, I'm sure your mom will love it!

Probably would. :XD: I should (I probably won't, but I should) look around and see what fonts I can install to GIMP.

I don't use fonts that often, though....but :shrug: would be handy to have more on hand than the generic ones. :nod:

Indeed, I got myself some really cool ones from books and stuff. You have to be careful, though. Font downloads are a popular way to give people viruses

Oh, I can only imagine how good those would be for viruses. :XD: I don't like downloading things because of the threat of viruses.
