Guess What? A Few Copies of Issue 3 are Available!

Hi Letter Lovers,

I hope everyone had a marvelous year. Can’t believe the holiday season is almost here. Just wanted to let you all know, in case you did not get a chance to purchase Issue 3, the Watercolor Issue, before it sold out, that the warehouse at the printers just shipped me 60 copies! They are now available in the shop but are selling quickly. These will not be reprinted so if you want one, now’s your chance!

Issue 3 features six dashing artists: Joanne Fink of Zenspirations, Phyllis Macaluso, Lori Vliegen of Elvie Studio, Kristy Rice of Momental Designs, Kelle McCarter of designsgirl, and multi-talented Crystal Kluge. It also is full of a gorgeous array of watercolor calligraphy and several How To’s.

Also, there are only 70 copies of Issue 2 remaining. The Black & White Issue features Italian Master Penman Barbara Calzolari and the amazing flourished calligraphy of Schin Loong. Contrary to its theme name, this issue is full of colorful photos, chalk work, calligraphy gift tutorials, beautiful calligraphy details from the wedding of calligrapher Theresa D. Varela-Martinez, and a gorgeous calligraphed envelope gallery. Don’t miss the dazzling calligraphy of Russian calligraphers Yulia Harina and Svetlana Gorodnichenko.

Last but not least, Issue 4, the Bling Issue, debuted earlier this summer to lots of accolades and includes a keepsake flourished seahorse engraving. This stunning issue features six dashing artists: Philip Gattuso of Artistry Engraving, Maria Helena Hoksch, Kathy Milici, Heather Victoria Held, Rosemary Buczek, and Harvest Crittenden. I don’t know if there has ever been as much beautiful calligraphy featured all in one place! Learning calligraphy around the world, several beautiful wedding suites, a Schin Loong gold ink comparison, several gold How To’s, and a sneak peak inside the gorgeous calligraphy portfolio of Belgian Sybille d’Ursel are also included.

Order at: Dasherie Magazine Shop.

Thank you so much for all of your support!
