wordswork....

I just picked up my mail and look what was there...



'Wordswork'  is a book produced by the ASC showcasing calligraphy and lettering arts in Australia New Zealand 2009-2010 (all the work inside is from the last 18 months...) so the book is a real snap-shot of what's going on in the craft in this part of the world RIGHT NOW.....

and lookie - here on pages 8 - 9

its....




(look familiar? you've seen these works before in here.... it's good ole 'virtues' and 'vices')


In all there are about 70 calligraphers from Oz and NZ represented - with work ranging from traditional to contemporary - and from commercial to individually artistic.....

here'a sneaky peek of the work of my friend Nicol .....




yummy eh?


ooooo it's lovely to see a book of contemporary calligraphy (with so many long standing great mates included) printed and in my hands - hugestest biggestest hugs and kudos to my mates Julie-ann, Linda & Meg D who put in a MASSIVE effort to get this over the line!


p.s. the book will be available from ASC shortly - I'm told it will be $25 plus post and pack...... so for lovers of letterin' it's a cheeeep and delicious treat!
