Calliarts – Egyptian Block Lettering

Dear Members and Followers,

Our next calliarts is something new for us, we are looking at Egyptian Block Lettering with Valerie Keevers.

Egyptian Block lettering is the Roman style block print used by Ticket Writers and Show Card Writers before computers. The block letters were used for advertising in Newspapers, Sale cards in shops, shop window advertising and large posters etc. It is not used as much today as computer fonts have taken over the advertising, however is a useful skill to have in your calligraphic tool box.
