The title of this blog, unfashioned creatures, is from the following quote from Mary Shelley's Frankenstein (one of my favourite books of all time):
We are unfashioned creatures, but half made up, if one wiser, better, dearer than ourselves — such a friend ought to be — do not lend his aid to perfectionate our weak and faulty natures.Of course, the posts on this blog are themselves unfashioned creatures, of a sort, and will probably be less serious and polished than those on my other blog. I will continue to maintain and update silk for caldé - I've still got posts to write on The Knight and Home Fires, and I plan to read through Letters Home and post about that as soon as I have some more time free - but this will be the new location for everything else.
– Dr. Frankenstein, as recorded by Robert Walton (Letter 4)
