The year of lettering.

Have you heard of Kelly Cummings’ “year of lettering” project? It’s really lovely: She started it to practice her lettering skills and posts her progress often, featuring fun/funny/inspirational quotes. I am not any good at calligraphy, but at some point I was exposed to it at school (I had a legitimate calligraphy pen for awhile and loved writing with it), and it’s one of those things I wish I could force myself to do again, because it’s so pretty. For now, though, I’ll just check Kelly’s site to get my lettering fix. (Don’t you just love that Fitzgerald quote? Ah, the romance.)

    Wow, beautiful project! You always find the best designs. I had a calligraphy set in elementary school too…pretty sure I used it mostly for writing Harry Potter-themed letters. 😛

    At first, I expected this post to be about handwritten correspondence, and as a long time letter writer, I was intrigued. But oo la la! Imagine the lovely letters I could address? Thanks for sharing, Megan!
