I have postponed showing you the finished map, so that you can get to Art in Action if you live anywhere near Oxford!
In the Calligraphy and Illustration tent you will find: Freddie Quarterly (Ms not Mr)
…and Mark L’Argent. He tells me he wants to patent his amazing pen holder, but in the meantime I’d say the design is up for grabs! I love his work on old book pages – lots of exciting work.
Caroline Keevil was doing meticulous and beautifully spaced drawn and painted letters.
You would recognise loads of Ruth Rowland’s work from book covers such as “Memories of a Geisha” to the Dawn French autobiography and the ‘Welcome to London’ billboards at the airport. I loved her R’s, especially the polystyrene blots next to the top black one. Helen Scholes’s stand in the Newcomers tent is lovely, but I could not get near to take a photo as the tent was really busy.
Of course there is much more than just calligraphy at Art in Action and there are another 3 days with the promise of good weather.
