Logging Our Errors…

Visiting the Freemasons House on  the 2019 ‘Nationale Monumentendag’ (Open days for National Historic Places sites) ‘Freemason’s House’ I find one beautiful object after another. Being that this is the “display” section of the Freemasons building and the only section open to the public it stands to reason that their library is featured here. Some books,  probably all log books, ledgers and visitors books were written out by hand. Handwriting /penmanship was taught to a meticulous standard to boys and girls from a young age so little wonder that these books (maybe diaries??) are so beautifully written.  But… just to prove that in a medium where mistakes could not be erased, we also see that (maybe someone’s long sleeve?) smudged some of this beautiful work. No matter the amount of training, we are only human after all.
