kathy's button alphabet

you should see this one in person to appreciate the subtle details. the alphabet is called button alphabet. according to the legend, peter thornton invented it. later, louie lemoine spent time with it and asked peter if he minded if louie taught it. peter said it was fine with him. kathy suggested we have louie come teach a workshop. it is a very fun alphabet. and the way peter has gifted it to the calligraphic community is a happy reminder of how much we all benefit from the generosity of the masters.    to see  more of his work, also some student work if you click on workshops
