Winter Draws on! (that will probably
amuse more of you in the UK than other parts of the world)
the night’s drawing in now, it’s now the time to start thinking about your Christmas wish list. And to help you
with that, I have introduced two new services that are available via the web-site.
For the first time, our Ca££iCa$h vouchers are now available on the web-site. Ca££iCa$h vouchers are just like book tokens and can be used to purchase any produces that
are available from www.calligraphity.com and they will make ideal gifts for a calligraphic friend, or maybe your calligraphy
group leader especially if you are not sure what books they may be interested in.
Also available via the web is our Free Gift Wrapping Service. Upon request, we will wrap your book free of charge with papers and materials that
we have available at that time. If it is for a special occasion we will do our best to provide appropriate wrapping for that
occasion. Please allow us a few extra days to turn your order around if requesting this service as it is my wife, Lynn, who
is the master wrapper in this household.
those of you that have pre-ordered Stan Knight’s new book Historical Types, I have been advised that they have left the publisher’s and are on their way
to the UK. However, I have still not got a firm date for when they will be with me. For those of you that are keen to get
a copy of this long awaited book you can pre-order here. If you are not aware, although the web-site will capture your payment
details, your credit card will not be charged before your book is ready for shipping.
Here are some links to some recently added books.
