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.
You can get more information about these
books by clicking here.
Finally, for the paper engineers and origami fans amongst you, I suggest you check out
a new book by Michael LaFosse called Origami Butterflies. This amazing book comes with two DVDs that contain video instructions that compliment the written instructions
for the 26 different butterfly models contained within the book.
More news in a just few weeks
I have been reminded today by my friend Tony Curtis, that today, (February
11th) is Edward Johnston's 142nd Birthday and I agree that this is a date worth recognising. Happy Birthday
Edward, and thanks, many thanks, for how you have enthused us all to where Calligraphy is today.
