The romance of paper and ink
Delighting eyes and fingertips for hundreds of years, the process of adding ink to paper has borne poetry through the ages. From Shakespeare writing his sonnets to lovers exchanging tender promises with one another, ink on paper has the power to change a world.
Using interchangeable nibs in a specialised holder, many looks are achievable by knowing the tools and materials in this art form. No longer to be found only on dry old documents, calligraphy has undergone a renaissance and is popular with both traditionalists and trendsetters alike.
The process of pressing letters and images directly into paper is a traditional technique that's been brought up to date and is no longer limited to what fonts a printer might have on hand. The advent of polymer plates allows you to have any style of text or illustration that you desire.
Why I do what I do
I've long had a love of typography and letterforms, which has naturally led me to take an interest in calligraphy as well.
A passion for art and design took me all through my school years and saw me graduate from university with an honorary membership from the International Society of Typographic Designers and my Bachelor of Arts. It wasn't until later that I decided I wanted to learn calligraphy. In the end, I took a modern calligraphy class in London.
I didn't realise it then, but that course was terrible! However, I will credit those couple of hours with getting me hooked on dip pens and ink. After taking some online courses with some of the foremost calligraphers practising today, I quickly learned what good calligraphy looked like (regardless of the style being used) and understood it for what it is, an art form.
And thousands of hours worth of practice later, here we are. The addition of letterpress to my studio has given me the ability to provide a broader offering directly from my studio, and I still have my little black book full of talented craftspeople and artisans to ensure I can deliver on every aspect of your vision.
