String, by Spike Milligan


This is one of Gunner Milligan’s poems from his book Silly Verse for Kids.

I have omitted its ‘P.S.’, because I think that it detracts from the work’s pleasingly-pithy poetic gestalt. 


On a personal note, I need to practice my ‘serif handwriting’ more, not only to be able to incorporate the serifs less-awkwardly, but especially so that I write with e.g. uniform letter heights.

And I definitely need to work on my ‘a’ 🙄


Ink: Pilot Blue/Black;

Pen: Pilot Metropolitan, ‘CM’ nib;

Paper: a sheet of Rhodia 80g/m2 ‘High Grade Vellum’, taken from a No. 13 bloc pad.
