A friend of mine has a couple of projects she'd like your ideas
about, and she asked me to put a message on this bulletin board
for her, since she is not a subscriber; I'll relay your answers
to her. Both problems concern title-page credits.
Problem 1: She has taken a short modern poem by someone else and
illustrated it with a substantial number of her own original
photographs and made a special binding for this one-of-a-kind
book (she has the permission of the poet to do this). The
TITLE OF POEM
seems inadequate to her to convey the extent to which she has, as
it were, entered the picture; but she can't think of anything
better for the title-page wording. Does anyone have any ideas?
Problem 2: she took short excerpts from a 19th-century bird book
and wrote them out in a calligraphic hand to create a
one-of-a-kind book, illustrated with her own original drawings;
she then made a special binding for the result. Again, what might
the title-page read?
Thanks for your suggestions!
