Patricia Lovett MBE on the Art and History of Calligraphy

 The Calligraphy Society of Victoria in association with the Carmelite Library is pleased to present Patricia Lovett MBE. If you are in Melbourne on Friday the 29th of December you may like to visit the Library for a talk on calligraphy.

Patricia Lovett is a practising calligrapher and illuminator and a world-renowned authority on the practical aspects of how manuscripts were made. ‘Beautiful writing’ has been around for millennia and in her talk Patricia Lovett will consider what is beautiful writing, from the first women’s handwriting in the UK to artworks produced within the last few years. On the way she will take in one of the world’s greatest treasures, the Lindisfarne Gospels; how medieval manuscripts affect us today; and how calligraphy can interpret mathematics, politics, and typography.

Patricia will have her books for sale and will write in names calligraphically, as well as sign them.  

Venue: The Carmelite Library, 214 Richardson Street, Middle Park
Time: 2.00 pm Friday the 29th of December
Cost: $10, light refreshments will be served.
