Literary Calligraphy by Susan Loy


To Celebrate Our Friendship

Susan Loy of Literary Calligraphy in Moneta, VA, joins text from literary classics or Biblical passages with delicate watercolor images and creates a unique bond between fine art and literature.

Ralph Waldo Emerson's exquisite calligraphed words, "My dear friend, The day is so fine that I must try to draw out of its azure magazines some rays to celebrate our friendship..." are taken from an 1840 letter to fellow transcendentalist Margaret Fuller.

The print is a classical design using ancient species of palm, laurel, and olive that mean glory, peace and victory in the language of flowers. The borders in green and blue boldly surround the detailed illustration.
