An honor

The Friends of Calligraphy in the San Francisco Bay Area is celebrating it's 40 Anniversary. Four times a year they publish a journal that is now 28 pages thick. In the latest issue they reviewed a sub group called the Robins. A group that has been in existence since 1997. We make books for each of us that include the work of each member. Although I have rotated out, the group gathers and continues to inspire. For some reason, one of my pieces was featured on the cover! This is was done in 1999 and I am so humbled to have me piece so prominently displayed. The Alphabet has featured the work of some really famous and talented calligraphers.

Here is my 15 minutes of fame:

The back features a piece by my dear friend, Barbara Parke-Wolff who also was in the group.

What gorgeous work!! You should be very honored. You've inspired me to look carefully at the Scribe Society here in NYC - one of my goals for 2014 that went unfulfilled. Happy New Year!

Congratulations, and yes, that IS an honor. Lovely brushwork, and the text looks delicate in contrast. Nicely done, indeed.
