A Sense of Honour
This extract from page 60 of The Universal Penman was written by Willington Clark in 1736. and is my favourite piece of calligraphy.
Calligrapher Mike Moore (anasaziwrites) knowing my feelings for this work, kindly sent me this page from an early edition. It's the only piece of framed calligraphy on my wall. It is by far the most beautiful piece of calligraphy I've ever seen.  Now and again I've received accolades for an example of my Copperplate writing and before I get carried away, I only have to look at this page and I'm brought right down to earth. This is quite magnificent beyond words. I was astonished to learn recently that he was only 19 years old when he wrote this. How is it possible to produce such a remarkably, mature piece of work so young?

The wonderfully gifted Romanian gymnast will forever be remembered as the first to achieve the perfect score of 10 no fewer than 7 times on the way to winning 3 gold medals at the 1976 Montreal Olympics. Written with a 357 Esterbrook nib. I remember watching this on TV as it happened and I've never forgotten it.   Incredible!
You can see these performances on youtube.

This is written with a Hunt 101 nib in the Copperplate style, known (for some strange reason), as Ladies' Hand.

DID YOU KNOW........
The letter known as "thorn" was sounded "th" and had the appearance of the letter "Y".  It still appears in signage such as "Ye Old Tea Shoppe" where it is wrongly pronounced as the letter "Y".
