The books of the Holy Bible

Because there have been a few corrections in the titles since I memorized the names of the books of the Catholic Bible in grade school. I decided to write the list and share it with members of Our Lady of the Lake Connect bible study.

I began with a rough plan in uncial because it was used during medieval centuries before the printing press, and because I love twisting the pen to design letters.


You can see that I proofed it with several thoughts: spelling corrections, decision to slightly enlarge the first letter since uncial does not have upper case letters, modifying individual letters for a more artistic design, and inspection to improve spacing for a consistent presentation.

It’s off to the printer tomorrow for reduction into a bookmark size – probably 6 to an 8.5 x 11 inch sheet.

About Carol

A professional calligrapher for 30 years, I have hand written calligraphy in every size from business card to banners, including a full size reproduction of the U.S. Constitution. I specialize in Copperplate and elegant calligraphy for celebrations and parties. I stumbled into this art when my professor at Washington University told me "You could make money lettering." This was quite a surprise, as I had not seen any specific use of my talents beyond teaching children. As a result of designing my wedding stationery clients magically appeared. Balancing a family of four children and two big dogs with Bruce, my artistic time and available energy have varied considerably thru the years. Now I am happy to report that calligraphy is at the top of my activity list.
