calligraphy, colonial style

August 27, 2014

dipping the quill

While on a recent trip to Colonial Williamsburg (see Williamsburg in the 21st Century: An Insider’s Guide), I purchased some feather quills, natural inks, and handmade paper books for the children to write in. Last night while I made dinner, Oliver decided to give old fashion illustration a try. I’m not sure which is more charming, the pictures of the process or the actual drawings themselves.
