The first business I ever had was as a calligrapher when I was 14 years old. I put flyers and my business card in neighbors mailboxes and would address envelopes and certificates for anyone who wanted it. So, there's always been a soft spot in my heart for calligraphy and any exploration of hand-written type. I love this series of sketches and explorations from a calligraphy class in Brazil. And this one (shown) is especially lovely.

  1. Really beautiful, but not as beautiful and sad as the song (I’ll find a way) from Rachel Yamagata (one of my favorite singer and song…a voice that moves you). You should listen to it!

  2. hahaha! that’s so me too. when i was around the same age my summers were spent hand drawing letters and type.. and when i discovered calligraphy in middle school i became the girl that did certificates too! i’m so glad to see calligraphy is still here and strong. thank you for reminding me, i think i might pick up my pens again.

  3. Thank you! That’s a lovely post for my sketch.
    The set in flickr is mainly for my type related work (type, lettering, calligraphy)- made during calligraphy workshops, my MA, at home, or wherever.
    Best wishes,
    Marina

  4. I have the worst handwriting. I have typed letters to my grandmother because I am too ashamed of my scratchy penmanship in contrast to her beautiful lettering. I loved looking at the post because I can truly appreciate beautiful penmanship. Lovely post.
