Item Description

Custom calligraphy of the letter of your choice as an illuminated manuscript by artist Florence Marino in an 8" x 11" format. 

"Brooklyn born Florence Marino is honouring a time honoured tradition which was instilled in her by her talented grandfather. Florence?s grandfather was a Fire Chief in NYC. But, he was often called upon to write beautiful retirement certificates, cards and letters for work, family and friends. Florence fell under the spell of calligraphy by age nine or ten when she saw beautiful hand written documents in her home. "
