Heraldic Artist & Calligrapher

Practical Calligraphy

 I have converted my traditional calligraphy into digital calligraphy. It gives the look of conventional calligraphy but is less time consuming to produce and is therefor less expensive. It has a wide range of applications including laying out pedigrees, certificates and decorative calligraphy. It is also comparatively easy to add heraldry and photographs to the artwork. Styles vary from 6th century Celtic to Secretary Hand, through to more contemporary styles.

Check out the PDFs for more detailed information.

 Where necessary the older styles have been altered slightly to make them more legible to the modern eye. Artwork can be supplied in various formats for your own commercial print shop to reproduce or I can send prints on the highest quality art paper with inks which, the manufacture attests, are light fast for three hundred years.

Please email David to receive examples of the styles of digital calligraphy which are currently available.
