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!
