Welcome to the www.calligraphity.com Newsletter
for November 2014.
The nights are drawing
in, the garden is covered with leaves that need raking up, and there are Christmas Cards and presents to worry about.
Busy times for me too, as I am about to
start a 25 day run as Santa in our local Shopping Mall in Greenock Town Centre. So, this Newsletter is going to be short of
news, but more a list of some great books, DVDs, etc that YOU may wish to ask Santa for.
list contains links to the relevant pages within my web-site.
titles above are active links to the relevant page in my web-site. Click on the link to get more information about that item.
Also available is Jean Larcher’s amazing tome “Character Traits”
This is an outstanding
piece of work from Jean Larcher, and will surely be sitting in pride of place on any serious calligrapher’s bookshelf.
Important Note: The set weights 3 kg, including the slipcase. For this reason, and in order to keep costs
down, I am taking orders and these will be shipped directly to you from the publisher who is based in Germany.
The shipping costs from the publisher together with the price of the book to your global region will vary
and are currently as follows:-
= £97 + £6 shipping =
= £97 = £13.50 shipping = £110.50
Rest of World =
£97 + £24 shipping = £121
Your package will be tracked and the publisher will provide me with the shipping agent’s tracking
information so that I can keep you advised of its progress. Your card will not be charged before your book arrives with you.
Please note that the publisher is currently reviewing both the shipping regions and costs so there may be
some changes to the above table.
This is a limited edition of just 500 copies and each copy has been hand
signed by the author

Welcome to the www.calligraphity.com Newsletter for March 2014.
of the Month.
This month, I excited to announce that my Book of the Month is the breathtaking catalogue
from the CLAS (Calligraphy and Letter Arts Society) Living Letters IV Exhibition “All that Glisters… ”.
a comprehensive foreword by Michelle Brown, this beautiful book contains no less that 97 exquisite pieces from some of the
world’s greatest calligraphers. Please follow this link to learn more about the catalogue and those that contributed to this inspirational book.
exhibition catalogue that has recently become available is 26words. This was a collaborative project between the artists of Letter Exchange and the writers of “26”.
It contains 26 pieces (the first letter of the title of each piece begins with a different letter of the alphabet), the words
of which are penned by members of “26” and the artwork created by the members of Letter Exchange.

ZENTANGLES have arrived at www.calligraphity.com!! I have recently created a new section to cover this new, and very popular, phenomenon. I have about
14 new books on the subject loaded and I have another 6 in the pipeline. These are from renowned and popular authors such
as Cherryl Moote, Kass Hall, Standy Steen Bartholomew, Susan McNeill, Beckah Krahula, and Joanne Fink.

Finally, for the paper engineers and origami fans amongst you, I suggest you check out

for the 26 different butterfly models contained within the book.
