To be on the safe side, I think I am going back to shell gold for the current project

More gold

Testing golds.... any thoughts?

Working out some compromises in text. To match or not to match? That is the question. #theresgonnabealotofit

If you are in NYC, you should check out this exhibition: "The Calligraphy Revival 1906 to 2016" @ The Grolier Club which is open until July 29th.
Also, there is a beautifully designed catalogue (by Jerry Kelly) available if you can't see the show. #calligraphy #nyc

A little experimental writing, quoting one of the great experimenters of calligraphy.
(I get lots of "what font is that?" Questions. The assumption is you copy a model sheet like when you're learning. But I would like you to realize there is life beyond the "font"- we are always pushing the boundaries of 3 basic structures: capitals, minuscule &cursive, and with those, endless variation.) #tbt #experimental #karlgeorghoefer
