When first I began looking into the art of calligraphy, you can imagine all the sorts of goodies I found. Â Calligrapher Emilie Friday definitely comes to mind when I think of not only the art, but also the practice of calligraphy. Â EmilieÂ offers gorgeous envelope addressing, invitation design, address stamps and even calligraphy starter kits for those of you looking to try your own hand. Â Perusing her website, shop and Flickr photostream, you’ll find elegant examples of her work, glimpses at her practice pieces, and the details that make her calligraphy so special. Â â€“Â Julie
Details of a wedding scroll to be signed by guests. Â Note the delicate lines, fine touches and her beautiful watercolor illustrations. Â Imagine how lovely a wedding certificate would look with these kinds of romantic flourishes!
Emilie’s work can be very whimsical for a perfect touch to brighten up everyday correspondence. Â She also does amazing intricate work, with use of some of the loveliest calligraphy swashes I’ve seen.
Details like these really let you appreciate the work that goes into calligraphy. Â Thanks Emilie!
