Frequently Asked Questions

What is modern calligraphy?

Calligraphy is hand written script that follows very strict and precise strokes and guidelines. Spencerian and Copperplate for example are classic forms of Calligraphy and older (stricter) forms of cursive than we know now. Modern Calligraphy is just that, a modern take on Classic Calligraphy. It’s a lot like cursive in how it looks but less rigidity and regulation between letters and alignment. They do, however, still follow some guidelines and use basic strokes.

What is BuJo?

BuJo is short for Bullet Journal, an analog organizational system with many mental health benefits and opportunities for art.

What’s the writing style used by the founding fathers?

If you’re referring to say, the Constitution, then THAT was written in copperplate. Copperplate is incredibly rigid in its guidelines and strokes but beautiful to behold.

Follow up — can you write like that?

I can! I’m no master copperplate calligrapher but I can definitely do it!
