Welcome to the  Newsletter for March 2014.

Book of the Month.

This month, I excited to announce that my Book of the Month is the breathtaking catalogue from the CLAS (Calligraphy and Letter Arts Society) Living Letters IV Exhibition “All that Glisters… ”.

With a comprehensive foreword by Michelle Brown, this beautiful book contains no less that 97 exquisite pieces from some of the world’s greatest calligraphers. Please follow this link to learn more about the catalogue and those that contributed to this inspirational book.

Another amazing exhibition catalogue that has recently become available is 26words. This was a collaborative project between the artists of Letter Exchange and the writers of “26”. It contains 26 pieces (the first letter of the title of each piece begins with a different letter of the alphabet), the words of which are penned by members of “26” and the artwork created by the members of Letter Exchange.

Click here to learn more about this unique project and its remarkable output.

ZENTANGLES have arrived at!! I have recently created a new section to cover this new, and very popular, phenomenon. I have about 14 new books on the subject loaded and I have another 6 in the pipeline. These are from renowned and popular authors such as Cherryl Moote, Kass Hall, Standy Steen Bartholomew, Susan McNeill, Beckah Krahula, and Joanne Fink.

You can get more information about these books by clicking here 

Finally, for the paper engineers and origami fans amongst you, I suggest you check out a new book by Michael LaFosse called Origami Butterflies. This amazing book comes with two DVDs that contain video instructions that compliment the written instructions for the 26 different butterfly models contained within the book.  

More news in a just few weeks from now.

Best regards,
