Making Time

posted in: Musings + Quotables | 1

In a fit of testing all of the paper in our stash for ability to withstand copperplate calligraphy without shredding or bleeding, I penned this quote from John Burroughs. Perhaps my affinity for this goes a long way toward explaining why we were up so late with friends on a Sunday night…

I use quotes like this one as lettering practice, primarily because I get bored with repeating anonymous swirls. Do you have any favorite quotes or poems that would lend themselves well to calligraphy practice? Let us know in the comments, and see more images after the jump.

    could always do the Poem Jabberwocky by Lewis Carol. Talk about a lot of random letters
