February 2016 Calligraphy of the Week #tarquinswords

February 2016 #tarquinswords

If InCoWriMo isn't enough to keep you occupied this month, join in #tarquinswords! My pen pal, Melinda (@mel_kam), came up with this great idea to encourage herself (and then me, too) to practice our calligraphy regularly. In her case, she's already outstanding. In my case, I need practice, even if it's just a few lines at a time. 

What is it? One short word/a few words in the middle of the week, and one longer sentence/quote on Saturdays. 

What do you do? Post it on your social media, blog, or anywhere else, and tag your work with #tarquinswords! There's no obligation to post it anywhere, it would just be fun to see who else participates and see all your calligraphy!


Here are some words you can use, or come up with your own!

"Print is predictable and impersonal, conveying information in a mechanical transaction with the reader's eye. Handwriting, by contrast, resists the eye, reveals its meaning slowly, and is as intimate as skin." - ‘A Tale for the Time Being' by Ruth Ozeki
