Inscriber and Journal portraits

So there’s a thing that’s starting to happen, which I didn’t anticipate but I think it’s kind of wonderful.

It started with Journal 11, when I got it back from it’s Inscriber. When I went to take a photo of the return, the Inscriber said “How about I put the Journal in front of my face?” and promptly did.

I took the photo, although I wasn’t sure that’s what I wanted for the hand back photos, so I also got them to place it on the table and photographed it, ultimately that was the one I used.

Next was the hand back of Journal 2. As you might recall, we went for a pub lunch¬†and after the Inscriber handed the Journal back, I noticed that they hadn’t signed it. Now it’s up to the Inscribers whether they want to sign it or not, but when I asked this Inscriber, they decided that they did want to sign it. So they took it back and I snapped the moment of signing, feeling a bit like I was capturing something important, but not knowing why. I didn’t use the photo, but here it is.

Then just the other day, I went to pick up Journal 10 from it’s Inscriber. They wern’t in the office that day, but they had left it at the front desk for me, the lady there was smiling as she handed it back to me. Again, I forgot to take a photo (what is it about me not photographing Journal 10? How did I fail at that twice?) But I didn’t mention it to the Inscriber, to be honest I didn’t notice that I hadn’t photographed it. But the next day, the Inscriber’s lovely assistant emailed me this photo, without being asked.

How amazing is that? This is clearly a trend with the Inscribers, an interesting one since none of them know who any of the other Inscribers are. Super interesting!
