When first I began looking into the art of calligraphy, you can imagine all the sorts of goodies I found. Calligrapher Emilie Friday definitely comes to mind when I think of not only the art, but also the practice of calligraphy. Emilie offers gorgeous envelope addressing, invitation design, address stamps and even calligraphy starter kits for those of you looking to try your own hand. 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. – Julie
Details of a wedding scroll to be signed by guests. Note the delicate lines, fine touches and her beautiful watercolor illustrations. 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. 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. Thanks Emilie!
