– the latin calligraphy seen differently –

Intro.

Welcome to all enthusiasts of the Beautiful Writing... or if you prefer – Calligraphy. Welcome to my universe... This blog is dedicated to that unusual art and any related art such as graphic design, typography, etc. I created this site to express all that... my own way, with all the fascination and the spirit I can offer. I also wanted to show how I see, feel and understand the art of lettering. But why "Timeless Lettering Art" ? Simply because any sort of calligraphy in the world such as Latin [also called Western] – the one I actually practise –, Arabic, Chinese or Tibetan... is timeless and will always be anyway !... Also, I thought that the title sounded good and poetic ! Here you will find any info or news about it. I created two similar blogs, one in french and the other in english, because Calligraphy is everywhere in the world now... There will be an official website someday. But please content yourself with this blog in the meantime... Thank you. Malika [copyright - picture of the profile - Matthew Simpson-Morgan – april 2006]
