My dear friend Marianne Hudz did amazing calligraphy for this posting. You can contact her at 1.818.448.8909. You can see how she used several different forms of lettering, each style with its own personality.
I love the charm that vintage stamps add to any envelope, so I bought several through Champion Stams in New York. I matched Marianne's lettering styles to different eras of stamps and the effect is twice as strong!
