Sonja's Certificate Dorothy's Certificate

Friends of Calligraphy asked me to write the names on the honorary certificates for their Annual General Meeting at the San Francisco Public Library on May 1st, 2016.

Sonja's Certificate Dorothy's Certificate

The recipient names were done using gold leaf, Instacoll, gouache (cadmium red, jet black and neutral gray 3), a pigma micron pen and sumi ink. The lowercase letters were inspired by Hermann Zapf’s Fraktur and the versals were inspired by his Lombardic lettering.

The printed text was done by Ward Dunham.
