EBW kells-ish

this letter E came from some book that i no longer have. it is the only book i wish i had kept as it had some wonderful exemplars of very old styles of writing, in color. i'd love to time travel and ask these people *what's with the dots?* i love dots and i don't know why. they are mesmerizing. i put kells-ish in the title because the E reminds me of things you see in the book of kells. but i could be way off on that. i have not studied the book of kells or that era. if anyone who is a serious student wants to leave a comment and enlighten all of us, please do so.

another very nice cancelling job by the PO.
i love how they lined the circle up with the margin on the address.
