Master Penman Certificate
« on: June 05, 2019, 11:09:04 AM »
I, within four months of the onset of my eighth decade of life, am deemed a certified Master Penman in engrossing by William A. Lilly. Mr. Lilly, my lone mentor for the past 9 years, is in his 10th decade of life, and requested that he be an unshared signatory of my certificate. Due to age-related tremor in his right scripting hand, he elected to script his famed signature upon a separate piece of paper, cut around it fancily, and adhere it and the gold seal upon the certificate, so as not to damage the document. To earn and receive his certification leaves me unspeakably humbled.

Lastly, it should be noted that William A. Lilly, to my understanding, is the only living graduate of the Zanerian College of Penmanship, and who holds a rarely given and coveted gold seal certificate in Engrosser Script. His certificate scripted in his own hand is widely shared upon various internet sites.

If you wish to view photos of the certificate, I direct you to my Instagram account, supxor.  Until I can learn to reduce the size of photos, I will not be able to include photos, here.
