A card for Encouragement.
Inside message: Blank.
Notes about the original artwork as printed on the card back:
"Reinhold Niebuhr, a German Theologian, wrote this in 1932. The prayer was widely distributed during World War II. Versions of the prayer have emerged over the years. The most well-known. Longer version appeared in 1951. The small words are part of the 1951 version.
The text is written on two surfaces; vellum (calf skin) shows its beautiful transparency placed over the Arches Text Wove. Lettering on the vellum was done with gouache after pouncing and rubbing finely ground gum sandarac onto the vellum to help it accept the gouache and give clean, crisp lines. The initial ‘G’ was done with 23IK patent gold over gum ammoniac."
