08Aug

When the art center where I teach letterpress came to me asking to teach a modern calligraphy class, I was incredibly hesitant. Frankly, I still feel like I am learning a ton about calligraphy and was worried about teaching a bunch of people. I had so many fears – “What if they asked me something

Every once and awhile I get a request to do one of these. I thought it would be easier if I just added a few to my Etsy store for easy ordering. These are not hard to make at all and add a nice personal touch to dress photos. I also have a ton of

For Christmas last year, I made a few of these notecards for my friends. They would look great with grey or white envelopes or maybe some sunny yellow ones. I letterpressed the top of the cards with grey ink and still have that piece locked up for future use. When I finished, I lettered the

30Nov

I have had the Instagram handle @BibleType for a few years when I wanted to start a project centered around verses and typography (shocker via the name, right?). I stumbled upon the 30 Days of Bible Lettering group and decided to join in for Round 3.  What I love about this project was that it
