  1. I am sorry to report that the esteemed calligrapher, teacher and author of "Written Letters," Jaki Svaren, passed away on November 20, 2021. Her obituary will appear in the Portland Oregonian tomorrow (December 5, 2021). Here is a link to the obituary: https://obits.oregonlive.com/us/obituaries/oregon/name/jacqueline-svaren-obituary?id=31705095 A photo I took of Jaki Svaren at Reed College, February 11, 2015. David
  2. The third edition of Jaki's book has just been released! For more information, see: Enjoy! David
  3. I was in Portland, OR last week for some alumni activities at Reed College, and I was able to attend the Thursday evening Scriptorium. Jaki Svaren, a professional calligrapher, author of Written Letters: 33 Alphabets for Calligraphers and a student of Lloyd Reynolds at Reed in the '50's. Jaki usually attends the weekly Scriptorium and has been of great help, coaching Greg MacNaughton who actually does the teaching. I captured some copies of a handout Jaki had provided for the attendees with her version of italic minuscule ductus and numerous instructive notes on each letter. I got her permission to upload them to FPN. I hope you find them helpful. Happy writing! David P.S. The handout refers to 22 alphabets. The current expanded & revised edition has 33 alphabets.
