New Book in the Works

It's been quiet here on the blog front for most of this year. After my Virtual Reality experience at MIT in January, I became deeply immersed in a project—turning the forty blog posts about my life with calligraphy at the end of the last year into a book entitled Calligraphy: How I Fell In, Out, and In Love Again.

The book is written and edited, the design is almost done, and the cover is underway. It will be ready to launch in the fall. I'll keep you posted on the publication date and share bits and pieces along the way. I'm printing it on demand through Amazon's KDP Publishing. I'll be focusing on selling through amazon and personal appearances—illustrated talks and events. Bookstores are understandably less welcoming to amazon-published books so I am looking for other venues such as art associations and centers, libraries, and book and art groups. Suggestions are most welcome.

Spring Greetings

May the awakening earth
energize our spirits and
lighten our hearts.
