Purpose Statement and Collection Summary

Raven Quill Collection is a project designed to showcase the possibilities of representing a creative process digitally. The centerpiece is an original handwritten manuscript. The creative project is entitled: Recasting the Renaissance in the Victorian Image of the Raven and the Writing Desk which is referenced in shorthand by the collection as RRVIRD. Hence, the RRVIRD Manuscript refers to the orginal handwritten pages of the text document.
