Workshop Description

I am sure that many calligraphers have come across this situation of a client handing you a font, thinking it was a script, and wanting other items, such as addressing envelopes, to match that font. That is what happened to me, and I had to develop this script when the client gave me just an invitation card, for a wedding, and there were only the names of the bride and groom in that font. All the lettering on the invitation was in lower case, with no capitals (only 12 letters to work with). This was a font, and I researched many fonts before I came close to what I was given. I found a similar font and from that I developed a pointed pen version to fit the clients' needs. I had to address envelopes and place cards for the wedding, that looked very similar to the invitation. I used a Nikko G; due to the small size I wrote with and came to truly like the script. I have since used this script to write several poems and short quotes over the years and now wanted to share it with others. It is a very vertical script and can be written with an oblique or straight penholder.
