Earlier this year, just for fun, I entered the Graceful Envelope Contest, a competition sponsored by the national Association of Letter Carriers and administered by the Washington Calligraphers Guild. Each year they choose a theme, and participants (from around the world, but mainly US) send an artfully designed envelope through the mail to Washington DC. This year’s theme was all things “D” (as in D-liver D-letter D-sooner D-better). I just found out that I was “Best in Show”!! Here is my entry that will be on display in DC starting in September, or on line at www.calligraphersguild.org starting August 8th.
