This one needs some explanation. It’s for an English professor, who lectures, and writes books. So I went with books for the bishops, queens, and kings (his favorite titles are on the books. I made the Crowns and bishop mitres to look like they were ‘bookmarks’. The for the knights, I did the horse head, but put in a ‘bookend’ mode like they were holding the books together, then for the rooks a podium with an open book on top and for the pawns pens in ink wells…when the second version happens I’m thinking of switching to some kind of “plumed” pen.
Books about 6” tall, pens and ink wells about 4” tall.
