[Swipe] My heart feels warm. How can’t I not love and appreciate these beauties ? I will be using saver and memo vintage booklets for art journaling all 2018. Thanks @holddear for the inspiration, I really love your style.

“Colley Cibber Preparing to Write ‘A Letter from Mr. Cibber, to Mr. Pope, inquiring into the motives that might induce him in his Satyrical Works, to be so frequently fond of Mr. Cibber's name,’ Bloomsbury, 1742” (8” x 8” Oil on Canvas. Available via link in bio).
.
This painting is inspired by the professional animosity of the renowned Satirist and Poet, Alexander Pope (1688 – 1744), and the Restoration Actor-Manager, Colley Cibber (1671 – 1757). Cibber, actor-manager at the Drury Lane Theatre, was well known for butchering the plays of – for example – Molière and Shakespeare, suturing together scenes and speeches from desperate dramas like some theatrical, Dr. Frankenstein’s monster. Cibber also believed himself the epitome of the tragic ‘hero’ but was, in fact, successful, and feted in popular comedy roles such as Lord Foppington in John Vanburgh’s “The Relapse”.
.
Alexander Pope (among many others) derided Cibber’s acting and playwriting, casting him as the ‘King of Dunces,’ in ‘Dunciad,’ originally published in 1728. Cibber took the slight lightly, it’s believed, but had his say in a pamphlet published in 1742: ‘A Letter from Mr. Cibber, to Mr. Pope, inquiring into the motives that might induce him in his Satyrical Works, to be so frequently fond of Mr. Cibber's name.’ In which the impresario mocked Pope’s short stature, his deformity, and his ability to attract women.
.
In response, Pope revised the “Dunciad” (1743), making it perfectly clear who “The King of Dunces” was, by renaming the hero ‘Colley Cibber’. Perhaps, Colley Cibber had the last word since he outlived Pope by some 13 years?
.
So here is Colley Cibber, sharpening his quill, before dipping it into the Inkpot of Revenge, and sealing it with his azure blue seal. Hope you like it. #colleycibber #cats #writersofinstagram #quill #quillpen #letter #letterwriting #waxseal #books #marmaladecat #englishtheatre #theatrehistory #restorationdrama

My version of a bouquet of roses ❣❣❣❣ I ain't need flowers and material things for these can be thrown and be devalued. I simply need papers and pen and your writing ❤️💯 #letters #traditional #handwriting #poetry #expression #letterwriting #love

One for #fontsunday from #audreyatchristies - a fan letter from motion pictures mogul (!), Samuel Goldwyn to Audrey after the release of Funny Face. Love the #typography on this #typewriter, and note the beautiful #funnyface #type and #fredastaire being called Freddie.... .... What struck me yesterday at the exhibition was the numerous letters that she received, and how we don't send them anymore! These days, it's a quick tweet to a star, or a whatsapp message to a friend. I'm going to try #letterwriting more! #samuelgoldwyn #letters #audreyhepburn

A morning of letter writing... I feel so lucky to have several friends with whom I communicate mainly by letter. Nothing better than the thud of a letter from a friend on the doormat, making up for the bills and unwanted flyers...

Yeah it is time for a new outgoing letter! As some of you might have noticed I spent my last weekend in Oslo, Norway. After coming back home my host mom welcomed me with a bunch of new letters. This was the perfect finish for the day. Reading all the news from my friends with a hot cup of tea! 💌

First official piece of mail at my new address, full of cactus themed happiness🌵😊💌 Thank you @franjola28!!!! ▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️
