logo essay

...among so many things "boiling on my funny mind's fires", I DO dedicate some mins (hee hee!) to my work - I didn't
like the logo we have at school, so while melting new filters in my witches' sabbath pot I found a little time to try and
realise my own proposal for an eventual change - small piece of that ancient vellum left after bigger works, 'twas a pity
not to use of it "seriously", it's such a hard "IndianaJonesING" to get such items from friends who work in libraries etc!
so, here it is - the name of our school, a famous latin motto about our historical town, our Malta cross on blue...:





ISTITUTO TECNICO STATALE PER IL TURISMO - AMALFI

"PRIMA DEDIT NAUTIS USUM MAGNETIS AMALPHIS"

- vellum, approximately 2nd half of XVIIth century;
- size: regular, cms 13.09 x 14.01;
- "onciale amalfitana", ca. Xth century, after samples from the "Tabula Protontina";
- gold leaf 23.1/3 kt on gum ammoniac;

your school is fortunate to have this beautiful logo.

well done.

and great use of the 'precious' vellum.

thank you, bette...but I still don't know (neither do
I believe) if this will be taken/chosen as new logo...
:)

oh sorry i misunderstood! i hope they choose YOURS ;-)))

Non posso dire che mi fa impazzire, però è molto sobrio e potrebbe fungere allo scopo: un buon lavoro! ;)
