Uncials and Beyond...


The Fairbank Calligraphy Society is conducting an 8-week course led by Georgia Angelopoulos, with Lorraine Douglas, Kathy Guthrie and myself contributing. The focus is on uncials, and it’s been fun to revisit these letterforms with Georgia as a guide. Above is my homework assignment... text is Enya’s lyrics, “Pilgrim”. I wish I had taken my camera to class, because all the work of the students laid out together was very impressive!

Oh my, I am SO envious of your students! Your homework assignment is inspiring and beautiful... it reminds me why I like Uncials so much. Hey, will you be in Chicago in July? If so, I'd really love to meet you. I'm going to be there the first half of the week, let me know!

Kathy -
Lucky you, going to Chicago! Should be a great conference. Unfortunately, I'm not going... however, Georgia Angelopoulos (who taught the class that this homework is from) will be teaching there.

Who are you studying with?

Hi Alice...this work is beautiful and I loved your class tonight. Your lines look beautiful and graceful and we had such a good time trying to emulate the flicks and flowers. Lorraine
