One day late, but here is the result after a week of cross stitching: I finished the upper right corner and 3 letters of my alphabet.
Working with fonts and calligraphy wasn't quite my thing at Art School, but that doesn't mean I don't like typography.
The layout and lettering of a page is very important, and I can tell the difference between a good and a bad layout... but don't ask me to do it myself. It's really a skill, and not an easy one.
So I'll keep to embroidering my alphabets and enjoying blogs or websites like these:
-Typefaces that capture a particular period or artistic movement.
-a lovely paper collection
