What Fiona Apple's 23-Word Album Title Looks Like in Her Own Handwriting

Things we now know about Fiona Apple based on the handwritten note she published on Facebook last night containing the 23-word title for her June album, The Idler Wheel is wiser than the Driver of the Screw, and Whipping Cords will serve you more than Ropes will ever do.:

Fiona Apple still uses lined paper! She writes in all caps! In purple ink! The title really looks more like a poem when broken up like this, five words on the first line, six on the second, seven on the third, and five on the last. It does indeed end in a period. And this album must really be coming out. (She did book a tour, after all.)
