Scribing - Commissions On Public Display
he art of illuminating (ie. decorating) handwritten
texts was developed in religious centres nearly a thousand years ago,
so it is perhaps not surprising that many of the commissions I receive
are for parish churches that wish to hang a commemorative text or
display a memorial item (in Carbrooke, Norfolk for example - see right,
enlarged - 86k).
ut remarkably, some 70% of my calligraphy artwork is
privately commissioned for family home display, usually by people wishing to set a favourite
modern verse or inscription in a traditional form.
ere is a list of some of the places where examples of my
calligraphy are on public display. Please
contact me if you want to discuss commissioning
any special piece (religious or otherwise!).
