Penned heading Calligraphy

Calligraphy, whether formal or expressive, is a joy to create and to behold.

There are still some things a computer cannot do.
It cannot inscribe a book.

Jo creates work for sale and undertakes commissions.

So for those who love individuality and want to escape from the mass produced - then handmade works make wonderful unique gifts.
