INK STAINED

Um so yeah people watch Transparent on amazon next week on the 26th. It’s about a 60 something father who comes out to his kids as transgender (based on writer-director Jill Solloway’s father) and it’s fabulous and has a plethora of queer representation and it’s pretty damn amazing.

This 14th century Italian manuscript of Boethius’s De Consolatione Philosophiae features a historiated initial, decorative border, and a (very amusing) grotesque on its first page. Also pictured is the verso of the front flyleaf which has scribbled notes and names in Latin and Italian, as well as some doodles. 

Medieval doodles!

The calligraphy line generator is finally finished!

I decided that drawing lines by hand was tedious and practice pads are expensive and would start bleeding after being exposed to the humidity. My solution is this page that generates lines at a certain angle - you can change the numbers or move the sliders change the angles, the height and width and the spacing of the horizontals. 

Click the hide/show button to hide the sliders and print. 

Adjust to the settings for the kind of calligraphy you are doing and print. In black it should show through many kinds of white practice paper. 

If you want to print directly on the sheet you will be writing on you can have it print in light blue by using the check box. 

The default setting is 55 degrees for copperplate. 

It definitely works on Chrome for OS X. Will be testing Chrome on windows soon. 

Guideline generator can be found here on what will hopefully eventually be a calligraphy blog. 

Ooooo! Yes yes yes.
