What is Dasherie Magazine? Wedding Calligraphy Sneak Peak

Dasherie Magazine | Order Now!

I’ve had a lot of questions about what Dasherie is all about so I thought I would share more details.

Dasherie Magazine, a new print magazine, is the only magazine dedicated solely to the art of calligraphy and hand lettering. Our debut issue features over 25 artists and over 100 images of beautiful calligraphy. Dasherie provides inspiration for artists and a fabulous reference for brides and other event planners looking for fine hand lettering ideas and products to make all the details extra special. So it is both a showcase and a way to connect those looking for calligraphy with those who do calligraphy!

Dasherie is unlike any other calligraphy journal or magazine. It is a “style” magazine along the lines of other bridal or niche magazines like sewing, scrapbooking, or the arts. It is a perfect bound, 100 page, 4-color, print magazine filled with high quality images of the finest calligraphy offered around the globe. We also feature full length articles with Artist features, DIY how-to’s, and more. I’m sharing a sneak peak below of one of our spreads in the first issue featuring the beautiful wedding calligraphy of Joy Fairclough, of Studio French Blue.

So if you love calligraphy, are looking for a wedding calligrapher, or you are an artist and want to be inspired — order your copy of Dasherie today!

I have butterflies in my stomach. I have been working literally night and day to get the first issue of Dasherie Magazine ready for all you letter lovers. I can say this — you will not be disappointed. I have been getting downright giddy putting together the pages due to all the beautiful calligraphy. One hundreds pages of calligraphy!

I am very excited to share with you another fantastic feature — Dashing Artist, Julie Song! Julie is so creatively inspiring and an absolute delight to chat with. Learn how she left the practice of law to become a full time (and then some) lettering artist. Julie shares with us what inspires her and her beautiful lettering so do not miss this issue!

The first run of Dasherie will be a small one. So order soon as once sold out — they will not be reprinted.

I also would like to say thank you to the wonderful artists and friends who have given me so much support in putting Dasherie together. This is the most creatively challenged I have been in a long time and I can honestly say I feel at the top of my game. I just feel like this is meant to be and I am doing exactly what I should be doing.

So thank you to each and everyone of you! Excited doesn’t even describe how I feel about sharing Dasherie with you. I just know you are going to love it as much as I do!

Truly,
Erica

Dashing Artists and Gorgeous Calligraphy!

Coming Soon Dasherie Magazine Summer 2014

I can’t tell you how much I am enjoying the creative process in putting together our first issue of Dasherie. Learning new things and brushing up on old skills is refreshing and exciting.

I’ve been meeting with our new printer and finalizing subscription details so stay tuned for more information on how to purchase the first issue.

The design process is now well underway and the premiere issue of Dasherie will feature over 25 lettering artists from near and far! Each issue will feature an in-depth interview with one or two professional calligraphers/lettering artists. One of our first Dashing Artists, Joy Fairclough of Studio French Blue, spoke to me from the 300 year old french silk factory she is renovating for her new calligraphy atelier. Joy shares the beautiful and elegant work she is doing from southern France, tells us how she became a calligrapher, and details the wedding calligraphy market in Europe.

Gorgeous doesn’t begin to describe the amazing wedding collaboration shot in Paris featuring Joy’s work. You will see all the lovely details in the first issue.

The Summer 2014 issue  includes not one, but two amazing artists. So stay tuned to learn more about the second artist!
