Fonts vs. the art of beautiful penmanship
Introducing Mary Catherine Folmar of Cotton + quill,
custom calligraphy / illustrations / textile designer
Mary Catherine's loose calligraphy is one of a kind, cheery and graceful.
Fonts are typefaces that have multiple weights and styles, there's lots of them out there and that's what this column will focus on every Friday on the Blog. But we can't pay homage to the art of typography without first saluting the original form of the art; beautifully handwritten penmanship....it is, after all, where most fonts get their birth. There's nothing more personal than your very own art and whether you start with a carefully drawn monogram or a commissioned piece for your letterpressed wedding invitation, or even commission your very own stationery art!!! - nothing- nothing - nothing-compares to something original.
