pen, ink, paint, oak frame, double matted


Height: 15 Inches; Width: 12 Inches


This classic inspirational/philosophical piece was written in 1929 by Max Ehrmann. It contains very sensible advice for leading a stress-free life. Sometimes it is incorrectly listed as found in St. Richard's Church (wherever that is). Originally hand lettered in Renaissance italic with a Renaissance Capital "G" and hand drawn ivy border, "Desiderata" makes a great gift for a birthday, graduation, or promotion. "Desiderata" is Latin for "to be desired". Just reading it is relaxing.
Presented in a contemporary black frame, 12" x 15", with a double mat. You have three options: 1. with a border, 2, without a border, and 3, with the title shown.
I will personalize it for free with the recipient's and giver's names and date.
I can gift wrap and hand write your message with a calligraphy pen on one of my Jacqueline Originals cards

I do have larger unmatted sizes (11" x 14" and 13" x 19". Let me know if you want a special presentation.

The print is presented on parchment, professionally double matted in cream on light slate blue, red, green or gold in a black frame, 12" x 15" I seal the back with a dust wrap and add a strong hanger.
I suggest purchasing calligraphy that is double matted rather than matted & framed because of the mailing expense of framed work by US International First Class. If the work shipped is matted & framed, unbreakable acrylic plexiglass will replace glass.
If you wish a matted piece, click on "Request a custom order" under the photo. Matted work is $24.96.
Measurements of work in Centimeters:
11 x 14 inches = 27.94 x 35.56 cm.
This is a common size and should not require a custom frame.

I ship promptly by Priority Mail within 2 days of completing your order.
I started my company, Jacqueline Originals, in 1971 and have been creating, writing, designing and hand lettering almost daily. I guarantee the high quality of my work.

She shipped it out sooner then I expected. It was packaged very well and was nicer then described. I am very happy and would purchase from seller again. This is a wedding shower gift for an Irish couple.
