Welcome to the Chicago Calligraphy Collective—an organization actively engaging in the study, pursuit and enjoyment of this dynamic art of letterforms!

___________________________________________

As calligraphers what we love are letters of all kinds; white space; text; the process; ink; gouache; brushes; pens of all sorts—although some you love and some you hate—coke pens and funky tools; paper—yeah, paper, especially handmade paper; watching the ink flow onto the page; sticks and cracks in the sidewalk, and things that look like letters; graffiti; kid’s writing; old handwritten letters; handwriting. We love the smell of sumi; the feel of paper; the sound of a pen on both the down and the upstrokes. We also appreciate the community, as we share new and old information; classes; conferences; blogs; twitters; cool websites; board meetings; and most of all, play dates!
