AT LONG LAST - The final volume of the amazing Saint John's Bible will soon be on its way!!

Yes, I have just been advised by the European distributor that The Saint John's Bible - Letters and Revelation is being printed and I should have my copies by 31st March 2012 at the very latest. 

This book is now loaded on the website and you can be among the first to own a copy if you pre-order now.

Please understand that no charges will be made against your card when you pre-order. I process the payments manually (the website just 'collects' the information) and I will not charge your card before your book is ready to be shipped.

to one and all.

Welcome to 2012!!

A new year and I am already find some new books that will be of interest to the world wide calligraphic communities that we serve from this site.

To be added to the site over the next few days is a new book from Margaret Shepherd entitled Learn World Calligraphy and enables you to discover African, Arabic, Chinese, Ethiopian Greek, Hebrew, Indian, Japanese, Korean, Mongolian, Russian, Thai and Tibetan Calligraphy and much more... covering the history and calligraphic styles this book is an eye-opener to World Calligraphy.

Also available soon is new book by Rosemary Sassoon on Marion Richardson, her life and contribution to handwriting. Using a informal hand Influenced by Edward Johnston, Marion produced two handwriting schemes the first of which was the Dudley Writing Cards. Later, after studying young children's hands and how they moved, she developed her letter forms to work for them. These were the basis of her copy books published in 1935 called Writing and Writing Patterns.

There is also a new Eleanor Winters book available titled Italic and Copperplate Calligraphy - The basics and beyond.

Hopefully I will have managed to learn how to use my new printer wit scanning and OCR capabilities this week so that I can get the books loaded.

Best wishes to one and all for 2012
