This year's holiday card is a silly one.
She's prettier when she's dirtier. When you get this beauty in the mail, hopefully it's earned some smudge from machines, crates, and dirty fingers. If you'd like to read this inkless filth more easily, rub her on a smooth floor and see what filth she picks up.
See? I'm not the only dirty one.
Stay tuned for a Valentine's Day card in 2013. Just as dirty, but in pink.
Thanks to Jonathan Selikoff at Vote for Letterpress for encouraging me to do something so terrible and for pressing them so beautifully. And to Barbara Calzolari, my calligraphic mentor - her August 2012 Nib to Brush workshop changed everything.
Happy Holidays everyone! I love you! — with Jonathan Selikoff at Anne Elser Calligraphy.
